Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP)
The Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) is a government-wide program that provides a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services. FedRAMP empowers agencies to use modern cloud technologies, with emphasis on security and protection of federal information, and helps accelerate the adoption of secure, cloud solutions.
FedRAMP consists of two primary entities: the Joint Authorization Board (JAB) and the Program Management Office (PMO). Members of the JAB include the chief information officers (CIOs) from the Department of Defense, Department of Homeland Security, and General Services Administration. The JAB serves as the primary governance and decision-making body for FedRAMP.
The FedRAMP PMO resides within GSA and supports agencies and cloud service providers through the FedRAMP authorization process and maintains a secure repository of FedRAMP authorizations to enable reuse of security packages.

The Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) is a crucial initiative established by the U.S. Federal Government to ensure the security of cloud products and services used by federal agencies. This program provides a standardized approach for security assessment, authorization, and ongoing monitoring to guarantee the protection of sensitive information stored in the cloud.
All cloud deployments and service models used by Federal agencies, excluding certain private cloud installations, must comply with FedRAMP security standards at the designated risk impact level (Low, Moderate, or High).
NSPECT.IO operates using Google Cloud Platform for its marketplace and other operations. Google has undergone the FedRAMP authorization process and its status is available on the FedRAMP Marketplace website, a resource maintained by the government.
