C3 | Onboarding a Cloud Program, a Compliance Journey

The cloud has become an increasingly popular option for storing and processing data, but it can be a complex and daunting task to onboard to the cloud successfully when considering factors such as meeting compliance requirements. This session will provide attendees with an overview of the key steps involved in onboarding to the cloud with compliance in mind, the importance of managing a federal security and compliance program for cloud operations, tips and best practices for ensuring a smooth and successful transition. Attendees will learn about FedRAMP, a critical federal security and compliance requirement that applies to cloud computing, and how to develop and implement a comprehensive FedRAMP program that meets these requirements.

This session is ideal for federal government IT professionals who are responsible for onboarding to the cloud or managing a federal security and compliance program. Learning outcomes:

  1. Identifying the regulations and guidelines, deciphering what matters the most
  2. Understanding responsibilities and the unique requirements of your cloud environment
  3. Setting up regular cadence to share how the expectations are being met
