FedRAMP Team Aims to Cut Readiness Assessment Time for Cloud Vendors; William Hamilton, Claudio Belloli Comment

CloudThe Federal Risk Authorization Management Program team seeks to revamp the readiness assessment process for cloud service providers in an effort to help reduce wait times for vendors seeking authorization, Federal News Radio reported Friday.

Meredith Somers writes William Hamilton, FedRAMP program manager for operations, and his team currently work to cut the assessment process from the 6-12 month time frame to the target 3-6 month duration under the FedRAMP Accelerated program.

Hamilton told a panel hosted by ISC2 in Washington that the readiness assessment process will help cloud vendors “get to our FedRAMP marketplace faster,” according to the report.

The process will require cloud companies to submit short reports and undergo reviews to address cloud issues, the station reports.

Claudio Belloli, FedRAMP program manager for cybersecurity, said the team conceived the new authorization process based on previous tours and discussions with stakeholders; architecture, engineering and cybersecurity reviews; and interviews with the Defense Department, Department of Homeland Security and the General Services Administration.
