Achieving Continuous Authority to Operate (ATO)
Authority to Operate (ATO) is a process that certifies a system to operate for a certain period of time by evaluating the risk of the system’s security controls. ATO is based on the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s Risk Management Framework (NIST 800-37). In this podcast, Shane Ficorilli and Hasan Yasar sit down with Suzanne Miller to discuss Continuous ATO, including challenges, the role of DevSecOps, and cultural issues that organizations must address.
