The CIA is testing Amazon Web Services’ cloud computing products against the agency’s cybersecurity requirements, The Washington Post reported Tuesday.
Mohana Ravindranath writes the CIA awarded the contract to AWS in 2013 and the cloud computing platform is scheduled for deployment in the summer.
Doug Wolfe, CIA’s chief information officer, told an AWS symposium that the agency is still adjusting its information technology programs with industry partners, according to the report.
“We’ve had some interesting conversations and debates on security. We’re working through that,” Wolfe told the symposium.
The Post reports that the CIA will be charged only for the cloud offerings it consumes.
