CTC URHD SaaS USDA (NITC) IaaS AINS eCase SaaS 9 FedRAMP Authorization Paths JAB Provisional Authorization (P-ATO) Prioritizes authorizing cloud services that will be widely used across government CIOs of DoD, DHS and GSA must agree that the CSP:

Strictly meets all the controls Presents an acceptable risk posture for use across the federal government Conveys a baseline level of likely acceptability for government-wide use CSPs must use an accredited Third Party Assessor Organization (3PAO) FedRAMP PMO manages continuous monitoring activities; agencies review results Agency ATO Issued by the agency only Agencies have varying levels of risk acceptance Agency monitors the CSPs continuous monitoring activities Option to use a 3PAO or independent assessor to perform independent testing CSP Supplied Submitted directly by CSP to FedRAMP

CSP without ATO CSP must use an accredited 3PAO 10 June Deadline and PortfolioStat June 2014 All CSPs used by Federal agencies need to meet FedRAMP requirements Baseline security controls, independent assessment, use templates, make documentation available in the repository for leveraging Agencies must enforce FedRAMP with cloud providers via contracts PortfolioStat Reporting New questions regarding FedRAMP Agencies must rationalize lack of FedRAMP compliance Agencies must identify plans to meet FedRAMP requirements PortfolioStat Analysis PMO reviews PortfolioStat reporting by agencies Compare with other data points Provide OMB with analysis for Agency PortfolioStat session 11 Lessons Learned Authorization Tailoring of test cases is critical for unique architectural design

Information security is a business issue Technology is easy; business processes and procedures, guidelines and practices are what makes security work A risk is not mitigated because its believed a service is only available internally Continuous Monitoring Same tools used for testing and on-going continuous monitoring Locking down the system critical to successful testing Planning significant change in advance Alignment of scanning, patching and testing schedules 12 Lessons Learned CSP readiness tied to a number of factors

Size of CSP infrastructure, alternate implementations, vulnerabilities or risks identified, type of service offering(s) Alignment of corporate business strategy to sell cloud services to the government Processes and procedures Able to address controls in preparation check list Section 5.1 of the Guide to Understanding FedRAMP 13 Increased Agency ATOs, Working Groups Agency ATOs CSPs and agencies need to work together to initiate and grant authorizations CSPs need to analyze customer base Agency path best suited for majority of CSPs Working Groups PortfolioStat reporting identified FedRAMP POCs

Assist in cross-agency authorizations Increase guidance and address common issues Give platform for CSPs to reach out to agencies 14 Impact of FedRAMP Enables Cloud Security Successfully proven the U.S. government can securely use all types of cloud computing Created a standards based approach to security through risk management Implements continuous diagnostics and mitigation (CDM) for cloud On-going visibility into CSP risk posture Trend analysis of vulnerabilities and incidents Establishing a new marketplace for cloud vendors Accelerates USG adoption of Cloud Computing

Enables agencies achieve cost savings and efficiency through cloud computing Accelerates time to market for cloud services when authorizations re-used DOI leveraged 6 authorizations and conservatively estimates a cost savings of 50% per authorization HHS estimates cost savings at over $1M for their authorization and leveraging of Amazon alone Ahead of the Curve Commercial industry is looking to FedRAMP as a model for building standards based security for cloud services Other countries are also looking to FedRAMP for their security frameworks 15 3PAO Update Federal Risk and Authorization Samantha Dizor Carter Senior Accreditation Officer Management Program American Association for Laboratory Accreditation (A2LA) (FedRAMP)

16 Topics Overview of Accreditation Preparing for an on-site assessment On-site assessment overview Post assessment activities 17 Initial Accreditation Process Review all applicable requirements and ensuring the organization is in compliance with those requirements Identify desired scope of accreditation Submit application and fees On-site assessment of organization Resolve any deficiencies within required time frame Final accreditation made by the accreditation body

FedRAMP determines inclusion in 3PAO program once 3PAO is accredited by A2LA 18 Application for Accreditation Application Quality Manual Organization Chart Completed Assessor Checklist ISO/IEC 17020 FedRAMP Program Checklist Scope: If additional accreditation beyond FedRAMP is desired New applicants: System Security Plan, Security Assessment Plan, and Security Assessment Report Renewal Application or applicants already accredited by FedRAMP: provide a list of all jobs completed.

19 After Application Submittal Application checked for completeness Assessor assigned with organization's approval Assessor contacts the organization to request documents and determine an assessment date 20 About Assessors Technical experts in their field, assigned to organizations in their field only Considered to be fact finders they collect information to show an organizations conformance with applicable requirements Trained and evaluated by qualified A2LA staff Undergo periodic refresher training Required to stay current on changes within their discipline 21 On-site Assessment

Interview technical staff to verify knowledge of technical procedures and policies Witness inspection activities being performed Inspect equipment and facilities Conduct field visits if available Collect evidence that the quality manual meets the accreditation criteria and is being implemented by the organization Collect objective evidence to demonstrate that the organization is in compliance with all of the requirements for accreditation and their own policies and procedures 22 What is Audited Management Requirements

Management or administrative activities Organization, control of quality records Strict adherence to documented procedures Internal audits, management review records Corrective and preventative actions Contract review Training records Purchasing records 23 What is Audited Technical Requirements Performance of inspections Sampling of inspection activities Review of System Security Reports, Security Assessment Plans, and Security Assessment Reports Interview with inspectors Review training program and supervision for new employees 24

Deficiency (Nonconformity) A departure from or an instance of noncompliance with a condition or criterion for accreditation ISO/IEC 17020 Method Specific FedRAMP program requirement Organizations own policies and procedures 25 After the Assessment Assessor will leave the deficiency report with all deficiencies listed Initial corrective action response including supporting documentation is required within 30 days of the assessment Corrective action must include a root cause analysis An investigation into what caused the nonconformance Corrective action and supporting documentation is reviewed

by A2LA staff; additional information is requested if needed The Accreditation Council is balloted Accreditation is granted when all issues are resolved and all fees are paid 26 Following Initial Accreditation An organization is accredited for a two (2) year period Surveillance assessment is performed around first year after being accredited One day assessment to ensure deficiencies cited during the initial assessment are closed and to review certain quality system documents Full reassessment around the second year of being accredited Annual Review after first renewal of accreditation 27 Current Status of Applications Total number of complete applications received: 22

Currently accredited 3PAOs: 8 Potential 3PAOs: 14 Application Processing Status On-site assessments scheduled: 7 On-site assessments completed: 3 Early 2015 or before - A2LA completes accreditation process for initial applicants Early 2016 or before - All current FedRAMP 3PAOs that plan to continue with FedRAMP accredited through A2LA 28 Security Assessment Framework Federal Risk and Authorization Matthew Goodrich FedRAMP Program Manager Management Program GSA Office of Citizen Services and Innovative Technologies (FedRAMP) 29
