Simply transferring on-premises security practices to the cloud can compromise the ability of federal agencies to use cloud computing as a lever to improve security. NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center uses an internal service to extend commercial cloud providers’ shared security responsibility while meeting the needs of mission projects. In addition to enhanced security, the Goddard Commercial Cloud (GCC) takes a cloud-native approach that expedites new projects, lowers costs and delivers a FISMA-compliant cloud environment.
