FISMA Compliance Audit Reports

What is Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA)?

United States recognized the importance of information security to the economic and security interests of the state and enacted the FISMA in 2002. FISMA has assigned specific responsibilities to the agencies National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and Office of the Management and Budget (OMB). NIST develops the standards, tests, metric, and validation programs to promote, measure, and validate the security information systems and services. FISMA requires federal agency officials to conduct annual reviews of the agency's information security program and report the results to OMB. NIST defines a broad framework for managing information security comprising of inventory of information, risk level categorization, security controls, risk assessment, system security plan, accredit ion and certification, and continuous monitoring.
