The Cloud and Cybersecurity
March 22, 2011
Four of the world's leading cybersecurity experts will be presenting at The Cloud and Cybersecurity Breakfast Briefing on March 22, hosted at Crowell & Moring's Washington, D.C. office at 1001 Pennsylvania Avenue and presented by Billington Cybersecurity.
The GSA is leading an important, interagency effort called the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP). It will provide a consolidated point for government-wide security authorization and related risk management activities of cloud computing systems. This includes an ongoing monitoring, assessment, reporting and remediation of security risk.
Four world class experts will discuss the latest about FedRAMP and what it means for Federal contractors, about cybersecurity and the cloud. Keynote David McClure, Associate Administrator of the GSA's Office of Citizen Services and Innovative Technologies (OCSIT), is the executive sponsor for cloud and FedRAMP programs government-wide for OMB.
Sanjeev "Sonny" Bhagowalia, Deputy Associate Administrator, OCSIT, is the program executive leading GSA's cloud and FedRAMP programs. And Dr. Ronald Ross, a world renowned Senior Computer Scientist and Information Security Researcher at NIST, was the lead author for Special Publication 800-37 Revision 3 (the Guide for Applying the Risk Management Framework to Federal Information Systems: A Security Life Cycle Approach) that closely supports FedRAMP.
Moderating the panel will be David Bodenheimer, a Partner at Crowell & Moring, Head of its Homeland Security Practice, Co-Chair of the ABA Science & Techology's Homeland Security Committee and Vice Chair of the ABA Public Contract Law Section's Cybersecurity Committee.
