FISMA Security Assessment

FISMA-security-specialistThe Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) of 2002 establishes security guidelines that federal agencies or those entities, which have outsourced agency business, must adhere to. For companies pursuing federal contracts, or that are currently working with a federal agency, FISMA is essential to demonstrate your company’s compliance with National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) 800-53.


FISMA requires specific documentation, policies and procedures, and defined processes to be in place to meet the rigorous requirements of NIST 800-53. A-LIGN’S understanding of the security requirements and experience conducting FISMA assessments allows us to assist your company’s FISMA compliance needs.

Following the testing guidance from NIST, A-LIGN conducts a FISMA Security Assessment to determine your company’s compliance with NIST 800-53. By using Agency supplied templates, or A-LIGN’s internally developed FISMA testing templates, A-LIGN can assist your company in reaching your FISMA compliance requirements.
