Federal Information
Security Management Act (FISMA)

If you are a government agency, contractor or an organization that exchanges data with government systems, you need to be FISMA compliant.

FISMA is an acronym for the Federal Information Security Management Act, technically Title III of the E-Government Act of 2002. It sets policy for information security across the entire Executive Branch of government. This includes numerous “civilian” departments and agencies (State, Commerce, Homeland Security, Transportation, Health & Human Services, etc.), as well as the Department of Defense and the Intelligence Community.

The goal of FISMA is to ensure that Federal departments and agencies apply risk-based, cost-effective measures to enact adequate security measures to mitigate the risk of the unauthorized access, use, disclosure, disruption, modification, or destruction of information.

Federal government systems are entrusted with transmitting some of the nation’s most sensitive and critical information. The impact of a data breach or service disruption to a government system would not only threaten

privacy for citizens, but could also have national security implications. As a result, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has worked in conjunction with the Department of Homeland Security and the defense community to create a comprehensive set of security controls for all government information systems, including national security systems.

CounterStrike personnel have extensive experience partnering with federal departments and agencies and businesses that do business with the government to help them meet their regulatory requirements. CounterStrike provides a full end-to-end security solution for government agencies and subcontractors to help them meet FISMA compliance using security control classes defined in FIPS 200 and described in detail in NIST SP 800-53 v3.
