Deloitte Earns First-Ever Authority to Operate for Litigation Support Systems
Discovery Digest – Q2 2013
Deloitte has been awarded the first-ever Authority to Operate (ATO) for litigation support systems from the U.S. Department of Labor. The ATO will allow Deloitte to host litigation data for the agency outside its firewall as it transitions into the cloud under the Office of Management and Budget's Cloud First policy.
Beyond data hosting, the ATO will allow Deloitte to offer the U.S. Department of Labor and other federal agencies eDiscovery, document management and forensics capability support. It also positions Deloitte to support other federal agencies with security requirements under The Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FEDRAMP).
"Deloitte is proud to be first to earn the Authority to Operate for litigation support systems," said Chris May, principal, Deloitte Financial Advisory Services LLP, who focuses on discovery services for government agencies. "Our work on this ATO is indicative of Deloitte's commitment to meeting and upholding the stringent security standards necessary to support the government-wide effort to transition data into the cloud."
The ATO assessment was performed under the Federal Information Security Management Act of 2002. It was awarded after a comprehensive review of Deloitte's information management security policies and information technology infrastructure.
