As cloud adoption continues to accelerate across the Federal government, and new technologies and applications enable ever more seamless collaboration, more sophisticated and advanced security threats have risen as well. Hackers, malware, ransomware – these threats show no signs of abating.
As part of its FISMA cloud offering for civilian Federal agencies, GovDataHosting delivers a full set of operational, management and technical controls according to NIST Special Publication 800-53 Revision 4 – Security and Privacy Controls for Federal Information Systems and Organizations.
New cloud services and solutions are coming to market at a rapid pace – accelerating collaboration and productivity like never before – but that has left some Federal employees wondering: Can you use commercial cloud services with government devices? After all, the end user is typically the most vulnerable factor in securing IT infrastructure.
FISMA is one of the most crucial data security regulations to impact the U.S. government and its supporting contractors. Compliance ensures the federal systems that collect, circulate, and store data adhere to a set of standard safety and security controls.
GovDataHosting’s managed security compliance services takes care of an agency’s underlying technology and required compliance activities, allowing customers to remain focused on their mission objectives.
GovDataHosting’s parent company IT-CNP recently announced that it has successfully completed a Service Organization Control (SOC 2) – Type II audit for the period of January 1, 2016 to December 31, 2016.
