Jonathan Feibus, chief information security officer at the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, has said NRC has begun to update several internal applications as part of its cloud migration effort, Federal News Network reported Wednesday.
âWeâve recently moved to a number of cloud applications for productivity apps like the office suite, like email,â he said onÂ the networkâs Federal Monthly Insights-Application Services Month.Â
âWeâve been testing a lot of our modeling software in the cloud so that we donât have to purchase single-use machines for here and weâve got a little bit more flexibility by doing it in the cloud.â
Feibus mentioned the benefits of implementing a Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program-certified cloud platform.
âAnd by using FedRAMP cloud we have a lot of security thatâs already in place for us so it ends up being a bit less expensive for us than having to purchase, secure and maintain single-use machines,â he said.
NRC selected an infrastructure-as-a-service cloud offering through an open competition and Feibus discussed the reason behind the decision.
