The Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) is a law that requires federal agencies, departments and its contractors to implement, document and maintain an information security program to protect information and systems that support the U.S. federal government. Organizations looking to work with the Federal Government must be granted an ATO.
BitSpartan Security helps organizations obtain an "Authorization to Operate" (ATO) by offering a suite of advisory and cybersecurity services that support the effort to meet FISMA requirements. From a process perspective, we can help with FIPS 199, FIPS 200, NIST 800-53 controls, SSP, Independent Assessment and POA&M. From a control perspective, we offer a suite of cybersecurity services including pen tests, vulnerability assessments, cyber risk assessments, policy development, and red/blue team operation services.

There are components that make up a larger part of FISMA compliance. FISMA uses the NIST Risk Management Framework (RMF) as a basis for its compliance requirements. For example, an essential step of the FISMA RMF is addressing risk using NIST 800-53 controls. NIST suggests you mitigate potential threats to a web application by performing a web application pen test. BitSpartan provides web application pen tests as a supporting service to your FISMA compliance initiative. That's one requirement checked off your control list, and we can help you with more.
