Hello CS leaders! 


I'm doing some research on FedRAMP compliance, trying to understand how much of a lift it would be and what kind of timeline is needed for a company to become compliant. 



If you/your company has worked on this, I'd love to chat, please reach out!

    Hi Alex - Thinking of getting into B2G? My experience (including working at a startup in the governance, risk, and compliance space): it's a significant lift. It's not my world anymore, but you might check out Reciprocity as a place to get started; they have a team of GRC experts over there and they know their stuff and make it digestible and actionable. And if it's not them, I bet they could point you in the right direction.

    Best,
