The Food Protection and Defense Institute (FPDI) was officially launched as a critical component of the nation’s food safety network, tasked to address vulnerabilities within the food system and to tackle any deliberate attacks on the country’s food supplies. FPDI turned to CoSo Cloud, a provider of private cloud facilities, for a hosted cloud collaboration platform that could securely and reliably connect federal agencies, state and local governments, food manufacturers, and other essential members of the nation’s food ecosystem. A close and constant communication platform was needed in protecting the nation’s intricate food system. This vital communication hub is especially mission-critical during times of crisis when any disruption of service or network intrusion puts the lives of hundreds of millions of people at risk.
The food and agriculture field is vast and spreads across multiple agencies. CoSo Cloud saw the need for a centralized platform to unite those in the nation that needed to coordinate from different organizations, sectors, and physical locations related to food safety. However, it was mindful that the system would generate large volumes of communication threads containing highly sensitive information about the nation’s food supply and threat response plans. CoSo Cloud protected the information that’s communicated beyond FPDI’s firewall between the center and its global partners with a FedRAMP-Compliant platform that they could 100 percent depend on to connect with partners via virtual meetings, training, and other sessions while defending against information security attacks and accidental exposure of classified data.
