AVOID LIGHTNING IN THE CLOUD: BASICS OF BECOMING FEDRAMP COMPLIANT AND NAVIGATING FISMA

Federal Publications Seminars

Each year, the federal government spends hundreds of millions of dollars safeguarding its IT systems. One of the key ways the government accomplishes this mission is by modernizing its aging IT infrastructure and – in the process – investing substantial resources in transitioning to a cloud-based environment. If your company contracts with the government and transacts business through the cloud, it must be well versed in the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (“FedRAMP”) and the Federal Information Security Management Act (“FISMA”).  In this webinar, seasoned government contracts attorneys Alexander Major and Franklin Turner will explain how your company can become FedRAMP certified while also complying with FISMA’s security requirements.

Good customer service is difficult to find in private business and is almost non-existent in government. Many government employees are beaten down and defensive and hate their jobs but are often trapped and simply marking time until they can get their pension. Most people don't enjoy being difficult, but they have become calloused and just want customers to go away.

Trump and the US Government Shutdown

Chatham House

From 22 December 2018 to 25 January 2019 the US government experienced the longest federal government shutdown in its history. This came as a result of a failure by both Republicans and Democrats to agree on $5.8 billion of funding for a wall at the Mexican border - a key promise made by Donald Trump during his 2016 presidential campaign. Although the 35-day standoff was eventually ended by the president by signing into law a funding package to temporarily reopen the federal government, congress have yet to broker a compromise on the border wall and the threat of another shutdown remains present.
