Government Contracts Cyber Café Series: Cloud Computing - FedRAMP Certification

Speakers: Hilary S. Cairnie and Heather Engel

8:30-9:15 AM (ET)
Government Contracts Cyber Café Series: Cloud Computing - FedRAMP Certification

Join us for the second installment of our webinar series that covers the top issues in government contracts and cybersecurity — all in just 45 minutes. The Government Contracts Cyber Café provides coaching, training and analysis to help you work through the technical, legal, accounting and other requirements confronting your organization, with the goal of helping you achieve compliance with the current DFARS and FAR cyber rules, regulations and contract clauses.

Our May webinar will discuss “Cloud Computing - FedRAMP Certification.” Cloud computing and cloud service providers (CSPs) can help companies reduce IT costs while providing scalability and business continuity. But how do you know if your CSP has appropriate security controls in place? What are the requirements for using cloud services if your company has government contracts? What are the legal issues once your data is in the cloud? And how can programs like FedRAMP and HECVAT help evaluate different services? Hilary Cairnie, chair of Pepper Hamilton’s Government Contracts Practice Group, and Heather Engel, chief strategy officer for cybersecurity firm Sera-Brynn, will discuss these issues and more during the webinar.
