The Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) is a United States federal law enacted in 2002. The act recognizes the importance of information security to the economic and national security interests of the United States. FISMA requires federal agencies, or those entities which have outsourced agency business, to develop, document and implement defined processes and procedures that adhere to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) 800-53 standard.
NIST 800-53 is a comprehensive, inclusive, information security standard that would help your company demonstrate a robust internal control environment to federal agencies interested in doing business with your organization.
