FedRAMP Releases Updated CSP Authorization Playbook

FedRAMP published an updated Cloud Service Providers (CSP) Authorization Playbook to provide CSPs with a more detailed understanding of the FedRAMP Authorization process now in two volumes.

Volume I helps CSPs understand the FedRAMP Authorization process and develop a strategy for achieving FedRAMP Authorization. Volume I includes:

  • How CSPs can get started with FedRAMP
  • Introducing the paths to authorization
  • FedRAMP designations
  • Considerations that CSPs should think about prior to pursuing an authorization

Volume II helps CSPs understand how to develop a high-quality security package for an expeditious and efficient FedRAMP Authorization to cut down rework and delays during the review process. Volume II includes:

  • Elements of an authorization package
  • Guidance for developing key artifacts
  • Tips for delivering a clean, easy-to-review package

While the CSP Authorization Playbook is written to inform Cloud Service Providers approaching the FedRAMP Authorization process, the information is helpful to all FedRAMP stakeholders.
