A Note From Our President & Founder Jim Garrettson
Cloud computing adoption in the federal government and the FedRAMP program’s role in that push were the topics of discussion at the Potomac Officers Club’s “FedRAMP Forum” Thursday in Falls Church, Va.
Matt Goodrich, who leads FedRAMP for the General Services Administration, kicked off the event with a keynote address then moderated a panel discussion to overview FedRAMP’s current status and offer an outlook for the year ahead.
Panel participants included Katie Lewin, a FedRAMP architect in her former role as GSA’s cloud computing director; Claudio Belloli, FedRAMP’s cybersecurity program manager; and Chad Andersen, cyber capability lead and FedRAMP program manager at Noblis.
