KnowBe4 Begins the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) Authorization Process
KnowBe4, a leader in end-user security training, has begun the authorization process for the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP). This is yet another initiative by KnowBe4 to better secure the data collected by its customers.
FedRAMP provides a standardized approach for securing solutions in the cloud. By meeting these strict security requirements, KnowBe4 will be able to provide its federal, state, and local government customers with a more secure solution.
“Our commitment to helping government agencies better protect our nation is solidified by this new, strategic initiative,” said CEO Stu Sjouwerman. “KnowBe4’s journey to FedRAMP certification is just one component of our investment and focus on serving government agencies and helping them to manage the ongoing problem of social engineering.”
With GDPR having come into effect last year, data security has been top of mind for a lot of organizations around the world. Organizations like KnowBe4 are being proactive at protecting customer data and demonstrating that protection to its customers.
In September 2018, KnowBe4 completed the SOC2 Type 2 data security exam: a rigorous audit done by an independent third party to assess a solution against an established set of security-related criteria. According to KnowBe4, they were the first security awareness and training vendor to complete this exam.
