Sessions cover strategies for achieving FedRAMP authorization, partnering with cloud providers to accelerate the FedRAMP journey, and advancing security compliance through:

“FedRAMP’s thorough technical and procedural requirements makes it the gold standard of cybersecurity mandates,” said Karen Laughton, EVP of Cyber Advisory Services, Coalfire. “Many companies pursue authorization to open a new revenue path. But as the attack surface grows, meeting FedRAMP compliance can also help organizations take foundational precautions to protect themselves, the federal supply chain, and our government.”
