December 6, 2021 – Frederick, MD – As we all continue to navigate travel challenges associated with the pandemic, the American Association for Laboratory Accreditation (A2LA) in conjunction with the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) Program Management Office (PMO) has decided to continue to offer a remote participation option for the Baltimore Cyber Range Technical Proficiency activity.
The R346 requirements document has been updated to reflect the three current options for participation with the Baltimore Cyber Range:
1. Onsite at the BCR facility in Baltimore, MD
2. Proctored remotely with a BCR proctor on-site and all team members present in the same location.
3. Remotely with team members in up to 5 separate locations collaborating through Zoom
Please note that the updated R311 Section 7.1.5 F.3 now requires annual re-participation in the Baltimore Cyber Range exercise by a representative team if the 3PAO has not completed a FedRAMP assessment within the last year. If your organization falls into this category, please email FedRAMP@A2LA.org to discuss the soonest participation availability.
