Who Needs FISMA Compliant Hosting?
The Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) was signed into law in December 2002 and requires each U.S. federal government agency to implement and support standardized IT security controls as defined by NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) for all agency IT systems that support the operations and assets of the agency. The FISMA security framework provides the common standards agencies require to confidently and safely outsource critical applications to external cloud, managed hosting or SaaS providers.
