The Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) has had its fair share of critics in recent years. And though reforms are still needed, the program has seen "significant improvements" since its creation in 2011, says a new report from the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation. The report offers a few suggestions for how FedRAMP can continue to see progress moving forward, such as the wider use of liaisons who find ways for agencies to save money on cloud services and the broader use of pilot programs that test ideas for overhauling FedRAMP.

Taking a people-centric approach to federal cybersecurity

People are the weakest link in the cybersecurity chain and federal agencies need to adopt a human-centric cybersecurity strategy. New research shows that more than 99% of cyberattacks are human-activated, meaning they need a human being to activate the attack by opening a file, clicking a link or being tricked into taking some other type of action. According to a new Proofpoint whitepaper, this will help CISOs anticipate the growing number of threats that focus on the end user. Read the report.
