Working as a contractor for the federal government means complying with a wide range of rules. Some of these are large, obvious, and well-enforced, like the security frameworks we so often discuss here on the Ignyte blog. Others are small rules, scattered throughout disparate memos and resources, and it can sometimes be easy to forget them – or not even know them at all. And, of course, it doesn’t help matters that these rules can change from time to time.

Over the last half-decade or more, the prevalence of cyberattacks on the government has only increased. Moreover, it’s not just attacks on the government agencies themselves that matter, but also attacks against the contractors and subcontractors working with those government agencies.

In the past, we’ve written a lot about FedRAMP certification and the way the Ignyte platform can help you with record-keeping and the overall process. We’ve largely glossed over the role that the third-party assessment organization plays, hand-waving it as a relationship you build between your chosen 3PAO and your own organization. As a certified 3PAO, however, we do have a unique insight into this process.

FedRAMP, the federal risk and authorization management program, is a comprehensive and structured way to develop a security – mostly cybersecurity – position when working with the federal government. It’s a framework meant for contractors and third-party businesses that handle information for the government and who need to keep it secure. The question is, if you’re a cloud service provider, what are the benefits of implementing FedRAMP?

In the world of security, there are many different frameworks that may be relevant or important to your plans. We’ve talked a lot about FedRAMP, the federal government’s security framework, but it’s only one of many options. Others, from HIPAA to FISMA to SOC2, can all have their role. One of the biggest and most direct equivalents to FedRAMP is ISO 27001. What is it, how does it compare to FedRAMP, and which one should you use? Let’s talk about it. Table of Contents 1.

Here at Ignyte, we’ve talked a lot about FedRAMP, the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program. As you likely well know, FedRAMP is the federal government’s unified security standard, derived from NIST standardization documents and transformed into a framework to provide a cohesive idea of security across disparate government organizations and contractors. You might wonder, how does this work with state-level agencies and departments?

Whenever a government agency, contractor, or subcontractor wants to work with a cloud service provider, they have to find one that upholds the level of cybersecurity, physical security, and authentication that the government sets as standard. Usually, agencies have two options to do this. They can work with a cloud service provider that is FedRAMP authorized, or they can work with one that is FedRAMP Equivalent.

In the past, we’ve talked a lot about the various FedRAMP guidelines required to reach either a single Authority to Operate or a generalized Provisional Authority to Operate. One thing that can be said to be common to all of these is that, in general, you’re talking about FedRAMP Moderate Impact Levels when you discuss these kinds of standards and certification processes. This is because around 80% of cloud service providers and offerings are classified as Moderate impact.

FedRAMP, the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program, is a way for cloud service providers to undergo auditing, scrutiny, and testing to validate their security. This security encompasses primarily information security but also user authorization and authentication, physical security, and more.

Recently, the Department of Defense shook up the entire defense industrial base with the release of a memo titled “Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program Moderate Equivalency for Cloud Service Provider’s Cloud Service Offerings.” The memo, aimed at FedRAMP contractors and the CSPs they work with, clarifies the concept of equivalency and what it means to be equivalent to the FedRAMP/CMMC Moderate control standard.

When CMMC was first introduced by the DoD, its purpose was to “normalize and standardized cybersecurity preparedness across the federal government’s Defense Industrial Base or DIB.” Essentially, they recognized a weakness in cybersecurity hygiene practices in their supply chain, and so CMMC became the standard the DIB would be “graded” by to ensure the protection of sensitive or Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI).

The improved CMMC 2.0 introduced multiple changes to the audit assurance process. What are those changes and what steps should you take to ensure the protection of Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI)?

This webinar is designed for Small & Midsize Businesses that work as federal prime or subcontractors. Our guest, Jayme Rahz, CEO at Midway Swiss Turn, represents a local manufacturer that has recently undergone a series of guided steps with Ignyte’s team and implemented over a hundred vital controls into their cybersecurity routine to become NIST and CMMC compliant and be able to conduct a self-assessment for the NIST 800-171 SPRS submission.

This webinar was hosted by Ignyte Assurance Platform and Federal Publication Seminars on 18 June 2021. The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), under the Department of Homeland Security, launches a campaign to reduce the risk of ransomware. Following an executive order signed by President Biden on May 12, 2021, which aims to increase cybersecurity defenses and resiliency against nation-state data exfiltration and hold global criminals accountable for ransomware attacks.

Cybersecurity is risk that affects all levels of business. Many credit unions don't have the tools or resources they need to efficiently track and mitigate the risks associated with non-compliance. This white paper talks about seven steps to manage Credit Union Cyber risk.

Ignyte is the ultimate translation engine for simplifying compliance across regulations, standards, and guidelines.

Today’s organizations are relying on legacy platforms with hidden software development costs. We help organizations get to value fast, improve their GRC experience, and make smarter business decisions.

Legacy GRC platforms and ever increasing hidden costs of software development has led to an inefficient method of managing paths to cybersecurity maturity. We coin this as the “Cyber Assurance Gap.” Learn first-hand how we deliver an experience that is more transformative, intelligent, and integrated than ever.

Challenge the Status Quo:

  • Integrated GRC: Integrate seamlessly with other applications and existing business processes.
  • Cut Costs, Not Corners: Reduce errors, improve efficiencies, and reduce security management costs overtime.
  • Time to Value: Ignyte Assurance Platform is built from the ground up by seasoned experts to get to value fast.

Welcome to the Next Era of Cyber Assurance.
