The Homeland Security Department is taking “an aggressive stance” regarding the use of private and public cloud computing services, Richard Spires, chief information officer, said on Oct. 6.

DHS is implementing nine private clouds and three public clouds, Spires told the House Homeland Security Subcommittee on Cybersecurity, Infrastructure Protection and Security Technology.

The department anticipates additional public cloud offerings to be developed in the next two years, as the FedRamp initiative is deployed to allow for joint authorizations of cloud providers.
