Everlaw Moves to AWS GovCloud (US) to Give Even Greater Security to Federal Clients
Everlaw announced today the migration of its FedRAMP Authorized federal SaaS platform to Amazon Web Services (AWS) GovCloud (US), making it one of the first cloud-native ediscovery, collaboration and document review solutions to meet these stringent U.S. government security requirements. Everlaw's platform, which achieved FedRAMP Authorization last year, is already one of the few elite technology providers used by U.S. government agencies for federal investigations and litigation. Now, on AWS GovCloud (US), Everlaw can maintain the integrity of its state-of-the-art, high-speed solution while protecting the most sensitive government information against cybersecurity threats.

Providing a fast, highly secure and modern collaboration solution that meets the critical needs of government agencies is of the utmost importance to us. Our move to AWS GovCloud (US) allows our federal clients to confidently use our solution, knowing that their information is protected by the highest cloud security standards.

Kevin Babcock, Director of Security Engineering at Everlaw

The migration to AWS GovCloud (US) underlines Everlaw's commitment to best-in-class service and safety for federal clients. AWS GovCloud (US) allows Everlaw to better support federal export controls, compliance, and storage of highly sensitive data. Additionally, the Amazon Region is operated exclusively by U.S. citizens on U.S. soil, as is Everlaw's platform, enabling the company to serve government agencies with NOFORN (no foreign national) requirements. Everlaw has also achieved ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification for data center security, and SOC 2 Type 2 certification in Privacy, Security, Confidentiality and Availability, as well as completed voluntary independent audits to support Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) compliance.

Everlaw's collaborative platform enables federal teams to discover, illuminate and act on information to better drive internal investigations and positively impact the outcome of litigation, congressional hearings, and internal and regulatory investigations. Historically, federal teams have had to rely on outdated, client-server software and expensive third-party service providers, but Everlaw combines speed, security and ease-of-use into a single solution that can be used in-house without maintenance or outside technical staff. Everlaw's unique features help uncover the truth more quickly and present findings more clearly, including 0365 integration, bulk redactions, searchable PDFs, A/V transcription, data visualization, foreign language translation, clustering, instant searching and in-platform sharing, with additional features released every four weeks.

National Security Commission on Artificial Intelligence Emphasizes on High Tech Employees in Government

The National Security Commission | July 27, 2020

Zooming out from its scope of national security and artificial intelligence, a federal advisory commission is looking at how to funnel an array of technical talent to the federal government in droves. In its latest round of recommendations to Congress formalized July 21, the National Security Commission on Artificial Intelligence suggests ways to get high-tech employees trained and then locked into federal service commitments—ideas modeled after the military service academies and ROTC programs. No matter how the proposals evolve with more study, “We all believe that there is a vast shortage of the talent in the government needed to prosecute AI and national security,” said Eric Schmidt, chair of the commission and a past top executive at Google, including a decade as CEO. During a July 22 call with reporters, Schmidt said the commission will relook at a part of its recommendation for a new degree-granting service academy within the federal government, which currently doesn’t allow for graduates to fulfill their federal service requirement in uniform.
