What is FISMA Reporting? Introduction and Overview

Q: What is FISMA reporting?

A: FISMA reporting is a process where federal contractors (i.e., businesses providing essential services and solutions to federal agencies) undertake a comprehensive process of adhering to the NIST SP 800-53 control of families, and other supporting SP documents. Additionally, FISMA reporting requires development of the following three (3) core documents: (1). System Security Plan (SSP). (2). Security Assessment Report (SAR). (3). If applicable, the Plan-of-Action and Milestones (POAM).

Introduction to NIST SP 800-53

But before you even begin to think about FISMA reporting, you’ll need to get to know NIST SP 800-53. NIST SP 800-53, titled, “Security and Privacy Controls for Information Systems and Organizations”, is an in-depth information security framework developed and published by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). It’s one of the most well-known and well-respected InfoSec frameworks in the entire world, and it’s also the core document utilized for FISMA reporting.

As such, NIST Special Publication 800-53 (Revision 5) is a comprehensive publication that seeks to develop and make available to a broad base of public and private sector organizations industry leading InfoSec and operational measures for all types of computing platforms. Such platforms generally consist of general purpose computing systems, cyber systems, cloud platforms (SaaS, IaaS and PaaS), mobile systems, industrial/process control systems (SCADA, the “GRID”), the Internet of Things (IoT) devices, and more.

The Widespread Acceptance for NIST SP 800-53

With technology now being pushed to the edge like never before, and growing cybersecurity threats creating immense challenges for organizations, a comprehensive security and privacy control framework is needed. It’s why NIST SP 800-53 is upon us, and it’s now a publication that is witnessing widespread adoption throughout North America, and even the world. It’s fair to say that both NIST SP 800-53 and ISO 27001/27002 have now become two of the most dominant security publications/frameworks in practice. NIST is largely present in North America, while ISO 27001/27002 has a strong presence in the European Union.
