FISMA & NIST 800-53 Compliance


Your Trusted FISMA and NIST 800-53 Consultants in Washington D.C.

Government agencies are required to implement an information security program that manages risk – so it’s time to get guidance navigating the requirements.

Information security is of paramount importance today. Hackers most frequently target data – with more than 2,200 attacks each day or nearly one cyberattack every 39 seconds. That’s why having gaps in your information security can cost you your business and even open you up to lawsuits.

While private and public companies in Washington D.C. and beyond must comply with a range of industry regulations regarding information security, government agencies must also take steps to protect the data they hold. FISMA and NIST 800-53 are the standards that dictate what government agencies are required to do. You should know that all organizations working within the federal information network must comply with FISMA regulations – including federal agencies, service providers, and contractors and subcontractors.

Mildeeng Systems’ expert team understands the importance for government agencies to achieve FISMA compliance, to increase data security, protect citizens’ private data and reduce federal IT costs. We also recommend that private-sector companies consider implementing FISMA-compliant solutions for increased data security.

Expert Oversight for FISMA and NIST 800-53 Compliance in Northern Virginia

The Federal Information Security Modernization Act, or FISMA, requires all government agencies create and implement an information security program to mitigate risk exposure in Northern Virginia.

Some of the most important FISMA requirements include:

  • Creating and maintaining an inventory of all information systems
  • Categorizing the agency’s held information according to risk level
  • Categorizing the agency’s information systems according to risk level
  • Conducting periodic risk assessments
  • Conducting continuous monitoring for threats
  • Implementing the security controls within NIST 800-53.

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) created the 800-53 framework to help government agencies comply with the FISMA requirements. This framework acts as a foundation on which organizations build strategies, controls and systems to support their cybersecurity efforts and protect the information they hold.

In addition to government agencies and offices, contractors and other organizations that work with the federal government must also comply with FISMA and NIST 800-53. Both FISMA requirements and the NIST 800-53 framework differ from other standards, such as HIPAA and SOX.

At Mildeeng Systems, our experts have worked with government agencies and offices, as well as contractors and other organizations that cooperate with federal agencies and entities to ensure FISMA and NIST 800-53 compliance. Our experience, expertise, and knowledge allow us to take a deep dive into your Northern Virginia organization, assess any gaps and vulnerabilities, and then create an action plan that resolves those issues.
