FedRAMP Compliance Challenges and Hybrid Approach
Tobias and Felicia discussed the implications of a DOD memo mandating FedRAMP compliance for all products used by a DOD contractor or subcontractor. They explored the potential challenges, especially for small businesses, and the difficulties in achieving equivalence. They considered the idea of using on-premise solutions as an alternative, but noted the need for specific documentation and careful implementation. Tobias and Felicia also deliberated on the potential benefits of this approach, including the severability benefit of on-premise solutions. They discussed the challenges of finding cost-effective, user-friendly FedRAMP tools, noting their high cost and complexity.
