Complying with the US government security standards such as FISMA, FIPS, FedRAMP or DISA-STIG is crucial not only for government agencies, but also for enterprises that provide solutions that comply with the strictest of the US government security requirements. At the same time, the operating system is the cornerstone of a compliance program. It provides the foundation for compliance for data protection with certified cryptography such as FIPS 140, hardening profiles for military applications such as DISA-STIG, and enables continuous vulnerability management. Canonical’s Ubuntu is well positioned not only to address the US government requirements for enterprise workloads, but also provide the foundation for any successful solution.
Complying with FISMA, FedRAMP, FIPS, and DISA-STIG with Ubuntu
In this webinar, we will:
- Provide an introduction to the US government security standards and highlight common challenges
- Provide a breakdown of the standards in terms of software requirements and OS requirements
- Explain how 3rd party applications can follow the US government standards with Ubuntu
- Discuss how Ubuntu provides a secure platform for government agencies to build, operate and innovate with open source applications and technologies
