Blackboard has received a “moderate“ designation under the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program, demonstrating compliance of the firm“™s education platform with government risk management standards.
The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency sponsored this FedRAMP certification for Blackboard Learn and a previous “tailored“ authorization under the same program in 2018, Blackboard said Thursday.
Blackboard Learn is a learning management system that allows schools to facilitate distance learning and online classes.
Bryna Dash, vice president of Blackboard“™s North America government segment, said the FedRAMP certifications, together with the platform“™s Amazon Web Services Government Competency, allow Blackboard Learn to further help the government adopt cloud and remote operations amid COVID-19.
FedRAMP aims to standardize the cybersecurity of cloud services used by the federal government.
