Each year, the federal government spends hundreds of millions of dollars safeguarding its IT systems. One of the key ways the government accomplishes this mission is by modernizing its aging IT infrastructure and – in the process – investing substantial resources in transitioning to a cloud-based environment. If your company contracts with the government and transacts business through the cloud, it must be well versed in the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (“FedRAMP”) and the Federal Information Security Management Act (“FISMA”).

In this webinar, seasoned government contracts attorneys Alexander Major and Franklin Turner will explain how your company can become FedRAMP certified while also complying with FISMA’s security requirements. 

This program is not available for CLE, CPE, CLP or other credits as a live program.
