Frequently asked questions

What is FISMA?

The Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) is a federal law designed to increase the security posture of government agency federal systems, bureaus, departments, and their supporting entities, such as vendors and subcontractors.

Vendors and subcontractors that provide information systems to agencies must prove, through an annual assessment, that they meet FISMA requirements. This process involves working directly with each agency to achieve an authority to operate (ATO) and be assessed to controls based on FIPS 199, FIPS 200, and NIST SP 800-53 Revision 4.

What DoD RMF stand for?

NIST developed the Department of Defense (DoD) Risk Management Framework (RMF) to provide a set of standards that enable DoD agencies to effectively manage cybersecurity risk and make more informed, risk-based decisions.

Who needs ITAR and EAR advisory and assessment services?

Any organization that deals with defense contracting, defense-related exports, or other defense services may need to comply with either the U.S. International Traffic in Arms Regulation (ITAR) or the similar Export Administration Regulation (EAR). Both the ITAR and EAR establish stringent requirements and restrictions for organizations working with export-controlled products and services to ensure that any export-related actions taken by the organization do not adversely affect U.S. national security.
