ASC is proud to announce that we have successfully passed an audit for FISMA / FedRAMP Moderate, demonstrating our extremely high security standards for our online assessment platform! FISMA and FedRAMP are both security protocols that are required to provide cloud-based software to the United States government, based on the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) controls, outlined in NIST SP 800-53. More information is below.
What does it mean that we achieved FISMA / FedRAMP?
If you are a US state or federal government entity, this means that it is much easier to utilize ASC’s powerful software for item banking, online testing, and psychometrics. You can serve as a sponsor for an Authority to Operate (ATO). If you are not such an entity, it means you can rest assured that ASC’s commitment to security is strong enough that it meets such stringent standards.
There are many aspects that go into building a platform of this quality, and then of course there is the substantial investment of a third-party audit. This includes code quality, code review, user roles, separation of concerns, staff access to servers, tracking of tickets and code releases, etc.
Yes, I’d like to learn more.
Please contact us for a software demo or request a trial account. We’d love to hear your requirements!
