Current State of FISMA Series
Not that FISMA was ever not a hot topic for security professionals in and around the Federal government, but lately news about the legislation has reached critical mass. As a result, we’ll be publishing a series of articles/posts on the current state of FISMA and the current state of security within the Federal government in general. As a general outline we’ll walk through the following points:
- The big news items related to FISMA and the monumental sea changes and rewriting of the law that have made big headlines the last couple months.
- Some of the detrimental forces undercutting security efforts in the Federal government.
- All FISMA legalese, OMB reporting requirements, and other things aside, what is it we’re shooting for here?
