What is FedRAMP?

light blue plus

Its primary objective is to provide a standardized approach for assessing, authorizing, monitoring, and securing cloud-based products and services.

What is FedRAMP's purpose? link link

FedRAMP helps federal government agencies plan their cloud adoption by selecting products and services suitable for an agency’s purpose.

FedRAMP helps federal government agencies plan their cloud adoption by selecting products and services suitable for an agency’s purpose. It helps agencies minimize cybersecurity risks, streamline compliance efforts, and promote the adoption of cloud technologies, all while safeguarding sensitive government data and ensuring privacy and data protection.

It is mandatory for Federal agencies to select cloud services that are authorized for a given level of impact. In other words, it sets the baseline requirements for security functionality and best practices when agencies are using cloud-based IT services for particular use cases.


FAQ: Netskope FedRAMP High Authorization FAQ
Solution: Netskope GovCloud


 

What are the FedRamp Impact Levels? link link

FedRAMP has three primary authorization levels, known as "Impact Levels," which are used to categorize cloud services based on the sensitivity of the data they handle. The three FedRAMP authorization levels are: Low Impact, Moderate Impact, and High Impact.

FedRAMP has three primary authorization levels, known as “Impact Levels,” which are used to categorize cloud services based on the sensitivity of the data they handle. The three FedRAMP authorization levels are: Low Impact, Moderate Impact, and High Impact. Each authorization level corresponds to a specific set of security requirements and controls that cloud service providers must implement and adhere to during the FedRAMP authorization process.

  • Low Impact: The Low Impact level is suitable for cloud services that handle non-sensitive, unclassified information. This level includes data that, if exposed, would have a low impact on an organization’s operations, assets, or individuals. Cloud services at this level must implement a baseline set of security controls to protect the data.
  • Moderate Impact: The Moderate Impact level applies to cloud services that manage controlled unclassified information (CUI) or other sensitive but unclassified information. This level includes data that, if exposed, could have a moderate impact on an organization’s operations, assets, or individuals. Cloud services at this level must implement a more extensive set of security controls compared to the Low Impact level.
  • High Impact: The High Impact level is designed for cloud services that handle highly sensitive controlled unclassified information (CUI) data that if exposed, could have severe or catastrophic effects on an organization’s operations, assets, or individuals. Cloud services at this level must implement the most stringent and comprehensive set of security controls to ensure the highest level of protection.

It is crucial to involve your agency’s information security and compliance teams in this decision-making process. Conduct a thorough risk assessment and engage with cloud service providers who have obtained FedRAMP authorizations at the appropriate impact level.

Remember that different systems within your agency may handle data of varying sensitivity levels, and it is possible to use cloud services at different impact levels to accommodate these differences. Choosing a product that is FedRamp High authorized provides a superset of coverage for all impact levels, thus providing flexibility to address your current and possible future requirements.

Which FedRAMP Authorization level is right for my agency?

Determining the appropriate FedRAMP Authorization level for your agency depends on the sensitivity of the data that your agency plans to store, process, or transmit using cloud services. Each impact level has specific security requirements and controls based on the potential impact of data exposure. To determine the right FedRAMP Authorization level for your agency, consider the following factors:

  • Data Sensitivity: Assess the sensitivity of the data that your agency will handle in the cloud. If your agency deals with non-sensitive, unclassified information, the Low Impact level may be appropriate. For sensitive but unclassified data, the Moderate Impact level is likely suitable. If your agency deals with highly sensitive information, the High Impact level is necessary.
  • Compliance Requirements: Consider any specific compliance requirements your agency must meet. Certain regulations or data protection standards may dictate the minimum impact level your agency needs to adhere to.
  • Risk Tolerance: Evaluate your agency’s risk tolerance and the potential consequences of data exposure. For example, your organization may have a use case that requires Moderate but it may be more appropriate to use High to address risk.
  • Agency Mission and Objectives: Align the chosen impact level with your agency’s security goals.
  • Interoperability Needs: Consider the interoperability of cloud services and data sharing requirements between your agency and other federal entities. Ensure that the chosen impact level does not hinder collaboration or data exchange.

It is crucial to involve your agency’s information security and compliance teams in this decision-making process. Conduct a thorough risk assessment and engage with cloud service providers who have obtained FedRAMP authorizations at the appropriate impact level.

Remember that different systems within your agency may handle data of varying sensitivity levels, and it is possible to use cloud services at different impact levels to accommodate these differences. Choosing a product that is FedRamp High authorized provides a superset of coverage for all impact levels, thus providing flexibility to address your current and possible future requirements.
