FedRAMP Moderate compliance controls

FedRAMP Moderate compliance controls provide enhancements that help you with FedRAMP Moderate compliance for your workspace.

FedRAMP Moderate compliance controls requires enabling the compliance security profile, which adds monitoring agents, enforces instance types for inter-node encryption, provides a hardened compute image, and other features. For technical details, see Enable the compliance security profile. It is your responsibility to confirm that each workspace has the compliance security profile enabled.

The data plane enhancements that are discussed in this document apply only to the Classic data plane in your AWS account. The additional security controls and monitoring do not apply to serverless compute, which runs compute resources in the serverless data plane in your Databricks account. For example, these new controls apply to pro and classic SQL warehouses, but do not apply to serverless SQL warehouses.
