Success Strategies for Meeting the 2012 FISMA Requirements Training Seminar

Over the past year, Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and  National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have made some major advances in improving the future security of government information system security.


How do you leverage all of these advances to successfully meet your 2012 FISMA requirements?  This 2-day course explains the specifics of these advances and provides strategies for leveraging them into meeting your individual and enterprise FISMA responsibilities in 2012. Attendees will gain a practical understanding of the strategies by working real-world examples during group activities and by reviewing actual samples of the key FISMA documents: 

  • System security Plan (SSP)
  • Plan of Action and Milestones (POAM)
  • Security Assessment Report (SAR), and
  • Information System Continuous Monitoring (ISCM) Plans

  • Understand the new NIST standards for the new Authorization Process, Risk Management Framework (RMF), Risk Assessments, and Continuous Monitoring
  • Learn how to conduct a risk assessment and use the results to identity and justify more effective security solutions and gain additional resources
