FedRAMP Updates Authorization Playbook to Disseminate Program Changes

1 min read

The Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) has updated a playbook that features best practices and other forms of guidance to help agencies conduct or reuse FedRAMP authorizations. 

The action aims to inform agencies about changes in the FedRAMP authorization process since the program’s initial run, FedRAMP said Wednesday.

Updates in the content cover using the FedRAMP Marketplace, reusing FedRAMP authorizations, collaborative continuous monitoring and the FedRAMP Agency Liaison program.

The updated document also tackles the process that the FedRAMP Program Management Office uses to review agency authorizations.

FedRAMP also intends for the updated playbook to support the information needs of other program stakeholders aside from federal agencies looking into the authorization process. The program aims to standardize the security of cloud products used by the federal government.
