Cybersecurity 2019: The Cloud and FedRAMP
October 15, 2019 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm$189
Class 4 in the series will explore cyber issues in the cloud, including Federal policies and guidance, acquisition of cloud services, and issues unique to Cloud Service Providers (CSPs). We will examine the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) and related requirements, as well as the processes to obtain FedRAMP authorization. In addition, the class will examine agency-specific approaches to cloud computing, including DoD cloud provisions, and considerations when using a third party to provide cloud services under agency contracts.
This series, taught by two experts in the field, will walk participants through the most important issues facing government contractors as they navigate the fast-changing issues of cybersecurity. Starting with a survey of the current threats confronting all companies in the cyber world, and ending with a session about how to deal with a breach of your systems, this series will also delve into the new government contracting rules relating to cybersecurity, as well as the new twists on existing technology and privacy laws in light of today’s cyber events.
Augmented by guest lecturers from government and the private sector, this webinar series will combine teaching of the key rules with war stories from the front lines and practical advice from experienced practitioners.
