The Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) is a U.S. government program that provides a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring for cloud service providers (CSPs).  To sell to the federal government, a CSP must have a FedRAMP Authority to Operate (ATO).

FedRAMP Gap Analysis and Advisory services

Before the Joint Authorization Board (JAB) or authorizing agency accepts the residual risk of a system and grants an ATO, you must provide documentation utilizing FedRAMP templates that comprehensively details the system, controls, and authorization boundaries. To help you prepare to pursue an ATO, we have developed services designed to match the FedRAMP process.

  • Readiness Gap Analysis – we conduct an initial technical capability assessment to ensure you meet the minimum requirements to achieve a FedRAMP ATO.  The Sybersense Gap Analysis will provide CSPs, who are pursuing a Readiness Assessment, an initial review of their environment prior to engaging a 3PAO. Some agencies are starting to make the readiness assessment a requirement as well, so ask your agency sponsor.

  • Advisory consulting – we advise on system architecture and documentation of the environment and security control implementations. We can also produce a system security plan (SSP), policies and procedures, and other necessary system documentation.

  • Continuous monitoring – we perform ongoing (monthly, quarterly, and annually) risk monitoring activities required to monitor and maintain the system after achieving a FedRAMP ATO.
