If you are a cloud service provider you are undoubtedly seeking FedRAMP certification. You may have already guessed that between the preparation costs to get ready for a FedRAMP audit as well as the 3PAO to audit and certify your CSP offering, the expenses really begin piling up.
What are the traditional costs to be FedRAMP certified?
According to FedRAMP.gov, the total median cost for a mid-range CSP was $2,250,000 to achieve a FedRAMP authorization. This splits pretty cleanly with about 50% of that being on engineering costs and 50% on the process itself. Additionally, about $1,000,000 a year maintaining an acceptable risk posture through Continuous Monitoring.
