FISMA

Ensure you can work with the Federal government with FISMA certification.

Are you pursuing federal contracts, or currently working with a federal agency? A-LIGN’s expert federal assessors can help your company meet FISMA’s requirements for all agencies to develop, document, and implement an information security and protection program.

Depend on a trusted partner like A-LIGN who has extensive federal assessment experience with FISMA and NIST Special Publication 800-53.

Maintain Contractual Compliance with FISMA Certification

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) developed NIST 800-53 to comply with the information security requirements of FISMA.

Compliance with the Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) is essential to properly safeguard the systems and maintain contractual compliance.

A-LIGN will assist you through the system risk categorization, security control implementation and assessment, and required penetration testing to demonstrate compliance with NIST 800-53.

The Benefits of FISMA Certification:

  • Enables your organization to do business in compliance with the Federal government
  • Demonstrates your ability to meet federal agency’s cybersecurity compliance requirements to obtain an authorization to operate (ATO)
  • Ensures you are covering best practices outlined in many security frameworks
