Achieving Rapid or Continuous ATO (cATO)

Obtaining Authority to Operate (ATO) to build software for the U.S. federal government can take months since it involves compliance with close to 900 security controls. If your team lacks the knowledge or training around these controls, the process can get delayed further.

This free course will help you to understand the fundamentals of continuous ATO and how you can accelerate delivery while controlling risk using SD Elements.

SD Elements enables and simplifies compliance by providing organizations with continuous visibility and traceability of adherence to regulatory standards and internal policies. It captures regulatory requirements for each project and translates them into actionable and auditable tasks that development teams can implement.

What you’ll learn in this course:

  • Why would you need an ATO and the regulations surrounding the risk framework
  • The process you need to follow to acquire an ATO faster while not compromising on the risk factors
  • How you can effectively get an ATO in the DevSecOps world where you must reduce redundant controls and inefficiencies

Achieving Rapid or Continuous ATO (cATO)
SD Elements helps organizations manage the ATO process by supporting three ATO pathways:

  1. Risk Management Framework (RMF) Now
  2. Fast Track ATO
  3. Ongoing Authorization or Continuous ATO (cATO)

It shifts ATO certification left by building security and compliance into all stages of the software development life cycle. SD Elements helps automate ATO requirement generation by removing non-applicable items automatically and translating ATO control objectives into actionable or prescriptive tasks for developers.
