We are excited to announce our release of the FedRAMP Tailored Baseline for Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) with Low-Impact Software- as-a-Service (LI-SaaS) Systems! FedRAMP Tailored was developed to support industry solutions that are low risk and low cost for agencies to deploy and use. Additionally, FedRAMP Tailored:
- Creates a faster, streamlined process for systems that are low risk for use like collaboration tools, project management applications, and tools that help develop open-source code
- Supports government Authorizing Officials’ need for a standardized approach to determining the risks associated with authorizing specific low-impact cloud applications
- Incorporates industry input in order to provide the government with the agility to leverage valuable industry services while maintaining appropriate security levels
We originally released FedRAMP Tailored for public comment in February of this year. After making significant updates and incorporating your feedback, which included over 330 comments and reactions, we released it for a second public comment period in July. You can view all the comments and FedRAMP’s responses by visiting the GitHub comment repository.
