  • FISMA, the Federal Information Security Management Act, is a pivotal US federal law enacted in 2002 to establish rigorous guidelines and FISMA compliance requirements for information security and risk management within federal agencies.
  • The primary aim of FISMA is to ensure that federal agencies robustly safeguard their information systems and the sensitive data they house from unauthorized access, use, disclosure, disruption, modification, or destruction.
  • To achieve FISMA certification, it is highly advisable to collaborate with a certified FISMA compliance advisor who can expertly navigate the essential steps toward compliance.

These essential steps encompass:

  • Conducting a meticulous inventory of critical information systems.
  • Systematically categorizing systems and data based on assessed risks.
  • Conducting comprehensive audits and remediating security controls.
  • Executing rigorous risk assessments of systems and data.
  • Formulating and implementing a systematic security plan for each system.
  • Sustaining ongoing FISMA certification and accreditation.
  • Maintaining continuous compliance and vigilant threat monitoring.

Fulfilling FISMA's requirements hinges on adherence to 17 distinct cybersecurity areas, meticulously outlined in NIST SP 800-53. Organizations must establish, document, and rigorously implement formal security policies and procedures for each of these areas. Embracing the FISMA framework for risk management yields numerous advantages, including continuous cybersecurity monitoring and assessment, the cultivation of security awareness and training across the organization, and a substantial reduction in the risk of losing federal contracts or authority to operate (ATO).
