Govcast | GovernmentCIO Media



GovCast will tell the personal stories of the government and industry leaders transforming the public sector, and the bits and pieces typically not covered by federal IT publications. We’ll share untold stories about how these influencers got to where they are, their passions in and outside of technology and the roadblocks they’ve conquered. You’ll find these stories are not always what you’d expect them to be.

Episode 4: Ashley Mahan, FedRAMP evangelist, GSA

September 18, 2018 | This fourth episode features Ashley Mahan, the General Services Administration’s first evangelist for the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program. She came to GSA in 2015 to stand up her role and help agencies understand FedRAMP — but she doesn’t have an educational background in IT. Rather, she majored in business and minored in real estate, which led her to a consulting company in Washington, D.C. serving federal agencies as a junior information assurance analyst — or what we call today, cybersecurity. Hear how that led her to a master’s degree in IT, and more about her unique experiences one of the faces of FedRAMP.

Hosted by Camille Tuutti and Amanda Ziadeh
