For federal agencies and the contractors that serve them, compliance with the Federal Information Security Management Act of 2002 (FISMA) is a critical endeavor — and a complex and time-consuming one.
With the latest National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) security and privacy controls, agencies and contractors have considerable flexibility in applying those baseline security controls outlined in Special Publication 800-53. The upshot? Each organization’s controls should align more closely to its mission, operating environment and business requirements.
But tailoring controls to adhere to the NIST standards — while also achieving business objectives — requires an in-depth understanding of the risks posed to the agency, contractor information systems and sensitive data. It also requires thorough documentation of the rationale for those customizations.
