The Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) of 2002 and the Federal Information Security Modernization Act (FISMA) of 2014 enforce stringent standards to ensure the security, confidentiality, and integrity of United States federal property and information. These acts mandate that all federal agencies, along with their contractors, service providers, and any organizations that operate government IT systems, follow certain policies, procedures, and processes to mitigate ever-growing data threats.
