FAQ

What is StateRAMP?

StateRAMP is a cybersecurity program that provides state and local governments a common, simplified method for verification of cloud security. Its verification model is based on the National Institute of Standards and Technology Special Publication 800-53 Rev. 4 framework, modeled in part after FedRAMP. Like FedRAMP, StateRAMP relies on FedRAMP-Authorized third-party assessment organizations (3PAOs) to conduct independent audits.

What is StateRAMP Certification?

A service provider that’s proven its ability to process, store, and/or transmit government data including PII, PHI, and/or PCI and meets and maintains the government’s published cybersecurity policies can obtain a StateRAMP certification status. 

What is the difference between StateRAMP ready and StateRAMP authorized?

StateRAMP ready and StateRAMP authorized are two different statuses service providers can obtain at different stages in the StateRAMP verification process. Service providers with a StateRAMP authorized status have completed all security and system validation and the government agency has accepted the provider’s completed Security Package.

What does it mean for a services provider to be StateRAMP Ready?

Service providers with a StateRAMP Ready status undergo additional security and system validation.
