GSA Eyes FedRAMP Training Program for Federal Security Officials

Jeff Brody

General Services Administration officials said they plan to provide federal security officers hands-on training on the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program, FedScoop reported Wednesday

“We’re going to start bringing security officers into our office, give them some training on FedRAMP, radicalize them to our methodologies,” Zach Baldwin, program manager at FedRAMP, said Tuesday at the Cloud Security Alliance’s federal summit. 

Baldwin noted the training program would be a grassroots initiative allowing the selected officers to work through an authority-to-operate project to “get the FedRAMP way out there.” FedRAMP provides cloud service vendors and third-party assessment organizations online training opportunities to better understand the cloud security compliance program, according to the report.
