Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) Policies and Procedures | Templates, Writing Services | NIST 800-53 | DoD | CSP | CSO
As a Cloud Service Provider (CSP), earning coveted FedRAMP authorization for your Cloud Service Offering (CSO) requires developing numerous information security policies and procedures. Without such documentation in place, earning FedRAMP authorization is simply impossible.
And when it comes to FedRAMP remediation, developing all the missing security policies and procedures – and the lengthy System Security Plan (SSP) – often are the biggest gaps found during the initial scoping & gap assessment activities. It’s not uncommon for a CSP to spend dozens of hours writing security policies and procedures.
Arlington's industry leading information security policies and procedures writing services for FedRAMP compliance includes professionally developed templates and toolkits created specifically for the NIST SP 800-53 framework, the very framework for which FedRAMP is built upon.
The HIGH, MODERATE, and LOW baselines for FedRAMP all require an incredibly large number of information security policies and procedures to be in place, so keep this in mind when embarking on FedRAMP compliance.
But more than just policy writing remediation, Arlington offers in-depth technical, security and/or operational remediation services. From helping configure two-factor authentication to implementing network monitoring solutions – and so much more – we offer a complete lifecycle of remediation services for FedRAMP compliance.
Federal Compliance Experts for FedRAMP Policy Writing
Writing information security policies and procedures for FedRAMP compliance is often seen as a laborious, taxing, and expensive exercise. Arlington’s extensive knowledge of the FedRAMP framework offers CSP’s a quick, efficient, and cost-effective solution when it comes to critical InfoSec policy and procedures development.
And because FedRAMP reporting requirements (in terms of framework controls) are derived from NIST Special Publication 800-53 Revision 5, Security and Privacy Controls for Information Systems and Organizations, you’ll find our policy documentation to be incredibly comprehensive and well-written, allowing for crossover and mapping for helping fulfill not only FedRAMP reporting, but other federal reporting mandates (i.e., FISMA, DFARS NIST 800-171, CMMC, eMASS/NIST RMF, etc.)

NIST SP 800 Driven Approach
The NIST SP 800-53 publication is arguably the most in-depth, well-known, and well-respected information security framework in the world, and it’s also the very framework CSP’s must comply with for FedRAMP. At Arlington, all of our information security policies and procedures are developed in accordance with NIST Special Publication 800-53 Revision 5, Security and Privacy Controls for Information Systems and Organizations.
One-for-One Match to NIST 800-53 control “Families”
The NIST SP 800-53 publication contains twenty (20) control “Families”, each of them requiring a high degree of documentation for ensuring full compliance with their respective controls. Arlington’s policy development methodology follows a strict adherence of mapping to all NIST SP 800-53 control “Families”, giving you the confidence of having all required policies and procedures in place for HIGH, MODERATE, and LOW baselines for FedRAMP.
Highly Customized Policies
As a CSP, your business is unique to you, and so should your information security policies and procedures be in terms of your CSO. Arlington uses a proven methodology for quickly and comprehensively developing highly customized FedRAMP InfoSec policies and procedures.
Testing Plans and Programs
Earning FedRAMP authorization requires much more than just policies and procedures, and that’s because a number of the prescriptive twenty (20) control “Families” within NIST SP 800-53 require detailed documentation that’s much more than just a simple policy or procedures statement. For example, as a CSP, you’ll need to ensure your CSO has an Incident Response Plan, BCDRP/CP Plan, Supply Chain Plan, Insider Threat Program, and more.
