Is Rutgers Connect FISMA Compliant?

Yes, Rutgers Connect, powered by Office 365, is a service included in the scope of FedRAMP.

The US Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) was established to provide a standardized approach for assessing, monitoring, and authorizing cloud computing products and services under the Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA), and to accelerate the adoption of secure cloud solutions by federal agencies.

While the Rutgers Connect service is FedRAMP compliant, significant compliance efforts are still needed by researchers and departments to be FISMA Compliant.
