When the Office of Management and Budget first conceived the Federal Risk Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) back in 2010 and launched it in 2011, the concept was supposed to make it easier for agencies to move to secure cloud instances.

Unfortunately for agencies and vendors alike turning that proposal into reality has been more difficult than imagined.

At the same time, the FedRAMP program management office saw and heard—sometimes quite loudly—the calls to simplify its processes without losing any security rigor.

Brian Conrad, the acting director of FedRAMP, said the latest set of initiatives strive to continually improve the governmentwide program.

This exclusive e-book addresses how the FedRAMP PMO and its partners believe the end result of many of these initiatives is a better, faster and cheaper cloud security program.
