FedRAMP Authorization

While not yet assigned a FedRAMP PMO or an Agency ISO, GHX is underway with an internal FedRAMP readiness validation effort leveraging several key security activities below to meet Agency ATO and subsequent FedRAMP authorization requirements as a trusted Cloud Service Provider: 

  • GHX is engaged with an advisory 3PAO and has completed a preliminary assessment for Agency Authority-to-Operate (ATO) and FedRAMP readiness.
  • The initial assessment validated that the majority of FedRAMP and VA Handbook 6500 controls are in place today within the current GHX Security Program.
  • This GHX Security Program and control framework is based upon NIST, PCI HIPAA/HITECH and other standards.
  • GHX already has annual GHX SOC1 & SOC2 audit reports.
  • For upcoming Agency or FedRAMP authorization requirements, GHX is underway with additional government-specific application analysis to identify any additional controls and testing needed
  • A System Security Plan (SSP) is being developed to prepare initial system and control documentation related to an Agency or FedRAMP authorization.
