The recent DNC hack has not only brought to light the questionable behavior within the DNC, but a lack of server security as well. FedRAMP, the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program is a government-wide program that provides a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services. CSPs with FedRAMP compliance provide 370 security controls necessary to carry such distinction.
While the DNC is not a federal agency, FedRAMP standards are now available to State and Local Government agencies as well as the Public Sector. Based on the NIST baseline controls defined in NIST SP 800-53 rev4 for low and moderate systems, FedRAMP brings this security standard into the cloud, enabling organizations to essentially comply with NIST security standards by way of FedRAMP compliant community/private cloud environment. Take a look at these security services here.
