The Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) is a federal program that ensures that the proper level of information security is in place when U.S. government agencies access cloud products and cloud services. FedRAMP standardizes the approach to security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring of cloud service providers (CSPs). FedRAMP grants authorizations to CSPs at three impact levels: low, medium, and high.

There is, however, a way your organization can stand apart as being especially committed to credit card security.
Compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is not easy to achieve.

PCI DSS compliance, like information security as a whole, is not a one-and-done process but ongoing. To succeed, your enterprise must be vigilant.
