To meet compliance requirements, governmental bodies and their subcontractors must store and process sensitive federal data separately from private sector workloads.
Leading cloud providers like AWS and Microsoft Azure have created isolated governmental regions to serve specific needs in the public sector, which has helped accelerate cloud adoption in the federal space.

In this webinar, you will learn:
- Benefits of the cloud in the public sector
- Key compliance frameworks that apply to governmental agencies
- Types of IaaS offerings available
- Cloud best practices
