FedRAMP deadline- Industry and Agency Days

May 15, 2014, Rob Barnes, Director, Federal Practice

The FedRAMP PMO sent out a notification that they are holding a FedRAMP Industry Day on June 4, 2014 and an Agency Day on June 10, 2014. Items to discuss include the June 5, 2014 deadline, NIST SP 800-53 rev 4 transitions and the 3PAO privitization progress to name a few. We wanted to republish the notification for those that may not have seen the notification.

FedRAMP Industry Day June 4th and Agency Day June 10th

The approaching June 2014 deadline requires agencies and Cloud Service Providers doing business with the Federal government comply with the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP).  
The FedRAMP PMO continues to make every effort to ensure that requirements and communication are clear.  In this spirit, the FedRAMP PMO plans to host two events aimed at educating government and industry alike.

For members of industry, the FedRAMP Industry Day will take place on Wednesday June 4, 2014 from 1:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. at General Services Administration Headquarters; 1800 F Street, NW; Washington, DC. The event will be held in the GSA Conference Center (Rooms 1459, 1460 and 1461). Pre-registration is required for this event - registration can be accessed here: (http://cloud.cio.gov/fedramp/june-4-industry-day) Please note that registration will close on June 2 or when venue capacity is reached.

For federal employees, the FedRAMP Agency Day will take place on Tuesday June 10, 2014 from 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m at the General Services Administration NCR Building Auditorium; 7th & D Street, SW; Washington, DC. Contractors directly supporting federal agencies will be admitted, but preference will be given to federal employees should registration space become an issue. Pre-registration is required for this event - registration can be accessed here: (http://cloud.cio.gov/fedramp/june-10-agency-day) Please note that registration will close on June 6 or when venue capacity is reached.

The agenda for both events will include overall FedRAMP updates:

  • 3PAO privatization and accreditation
  • Paths to achieving FedRAMP authorization
  • Documentation updates including NIST 800-53 Revision 4 and its impacts
  • Continuous monitoring
  • Question and answer session.
For additional information, please visit www.FedRAMP.gov.  We look forward to seeing you at the event.

Sincerely,
FedRAMP PMO
