The Defense Information Systems Agency has issued new security guidance for commercial providers who aim to provide cloud services to the Defense Department.

DISA said Wednesday the guide is also meant to help DoD evaluate, authorize and implement a commercially-made cloud product to support their missions.

Mark Orndorff, DISA’s risk management executive, said the agency aims “to ensure that DoD can attain the full economic and technical advantages of using the commercial cloud without putting the department’s data and missions at risk.”

The document also contains policies for CSPs to host defense information and missions that fall under a secret or a lower classification, according to DISA.
