FISMA

FISMA Compliance Auditing & Reporting

Segment: Federal Agencies

     
icon-selected-opt
 

The Federal Information Security and Management Act (FISMA) requires federal agencies to provide security protections for information collected or maintained by or on behalf of the agency; and information systems used or operated by an agency or by a contractor of an agency or other organization on behalf of an agency.

The IT-FISMA Connect

Protecting the Federal Data Security with ADAudit Plus is a very thorough and a cost effective solution. The annual Report to Congress on the Implementation of The Federal Information Security Management Act for Fiscal Year 2012 reveals that while the cost of securing information systems increased by one billion dollars, the federal government was less compliant with security standards than they were in 2011.

So how can ADAudit Plus help secure the Nations Security Houses? Before we go into details, first things first; Being Windows Network Secure and meeting FISMA Compliance is not a big deal, it is but a ongoing process which involves the federal agency to have ADAudit Plus do its job of monitoring the entire Windows Server environment and reporting with email alerts the changes along with periodic reports. Also, there is the FISMA Compliance kit within ADAudit Plus to ease the agency's rigmarole with meeting Compliance.
