What is DISA?

Defense Information Systems Agency is an agency of the US Department of Defense (DoD) responsible for building and maintaining the DoD Cloud Computing Security Requirements Guide (SRG). This SRG defines baseline security requirements used by the DoD to assess the security strength of any cloud service offering (CSO).

DISA guides DoD agencies and departments in planning and authorizing the use of a cloud service. It also evaluates cloud services’ compliance with the SRG through a stringent authorization process by issuing a DoD provisional authorization (PAs) to the eligible service providers. It helps DoD agencies and supporting organizations to use cloud services for their mission-critical and highly sensitive functions without having to go through a full evaluation and approval process on their own.

Why do you need an IL4-authorized solution provider?

The cloud computing SRG defines impact levels by sensitivity or confidentiality of information (public, controlled, unclassified, classified) handled by the Cloud Service Provider and the potential impact of an event that may result in loss of confidentiality, integrity, or availability of that information.

DoD has defined information impact levels (ILs) by audience and sensitivity, each requiring different protections and treatment.

This means that DoD agencies require different/higher protections and treatments than the basic Risk Management Framework (RMF) information categorization of low, moderate, and high as defined by NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) and used by The Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) or the rest of the Federal Government.

Information Impact level 4 (IL4) includes controlled unclassified information (CUI), export-controlled data, personally identifiable information (PII), and protected health information (PHI), along with other mission-critical data. It includes all security controls of IL2 or equivalent FedRamp Moderate plus more.

How is IL4 better than IL2?
