Event Details


Accelerating the ATO - How Federal agencies are working to streamline the ATO process

The problem of the ATO process is that it is inconsistently applied across the federal government, resulting in greatly differing controls, a delayed process that is hard to predict, and significant costs.  In this program event, we will discuss the history of the ATO well as practical steps to reform a broken bureaucratic process and replace it with an actionable solution for today’s fast-paced digital world.

Learning objectives:                                                                       

  •        History of ATO and statutory framework
  •        Threat Modeling & OSCAL
  •        Inheriting controls via FedRAMP and DISA
  •        Cross-agency resource sharing pilots (Federal Compliance Library)
  •        Future of statutes – perhaps to be Data centric
