What You Need to Know About FISMA
The Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) is a United States federal law passed in 2002 that requires companies to establish protection plans for secure information and data. FISMA is part of the larger E-Government Act of 2002 designed to monitor and improve sensitive information managed by electronic government services and organizations.
FISMA requires companies to conduct annual reports of information security programs set in place, including data useful in the prevention of liabilities and potential risks.
FISMA Compliance Requirements
FISMA was introduced to reduce risks involving federal information and data while also managing federal spending on information security programs and procedures. The importance of FISMA is summarized as a means to protect sensitive information in a timely and costly manner.
To be FISMA compliant, companies must follow a FISMA Certification Process that begins with meeting the guidelines set in place by NIST. Adherence to these guidelines is crucial for FISMA compliance.
Companies must follow the nine steps outlined by NIST:
- Categorize the information to be protected.
- Select minimum baseline controls.
- Refine controls using a risk assessment procedure.
- Document the controls in the system security plan.
- Implement security controls in appropriate information systems.
- Assess the effectiveness of the security controls once they have been implemented.
- Determine agency-level risk to the mission or business case.
- Authorize the information system for processing.
- Monitor the security controls on a continuous basis.
