What is the FedRAMP Ecosystem?
FedRAMP streamlines the federal agencies’ ability to make use of cloud service provider platforms and offerings.
FedRAMP provides three paths for CSPs to obtain compliant authorization after undergoing a third-party independent security assessment.
A CSP can be a commercial or government entity that has a cloud offering or service. The CSP is responsible for implementing FedRAMP security controls, hiring an independent third party assessor to perform initial and annual assessments, creating and maintaining its authorization, and complying with continuous monitoring requirements. Commercial CSPs must select an accredited 3PAO.
FedRAMP requires all CSPs to prepare their own System Security Plan (SSP). The SSP is the main document in which the CSP describes all the security controls in use on the information system and their implementation. In this onerous report are extensive details focused on System Description, Roles and Responsibilities, Hardware, Software, and Network inventories, and boundary and architecture, network, and data flow diagrams are propagated across Contingency Plans, Configuration Management Plans, and other documentation. A 3PAO cannot do this for a CSP and also assess the CSP as their 3PAO. This would be an extreme conflict of interest!
This illustration shows the process and notional timeframe to achieve either a JAB Provisional or Agency ATO. The time frame is dependent on CSP readiness and ability to respond to comments throughout each of the stages. Continuous monitoring activities commence once authorization is achieved.
Comprehensive FedRAMP Compliance Audit Services
Once a company has made the decision to enlist a third party to provide FedRAMP compliance audit services, they want assurances that those services will be provided timely, accurately and securely. A FedRAMP compliance audit shows your commitment to maintaining a sound control environment that protects your client’s data and confidential information.
Many organizations will find that the work to obtain authorization is nothing like any other compliance assessment that they have ever done before. The body of work is based on NIST Special Publication 800-53 for low, moderate and high impact systems, along with additional special controls.
