In 2002, Congress passed the E-Government Act, containing the Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA). This law requires federal agencies - and the foundations, educational institutions, and organizations that receive federal funds to develop, document, and implement information security programs to protect the confidentiality, integrity and availability of the data and systems that support agency operations and assets. Generating, collecting and reporting FISMA results each year remains tedious and time-consuming - often requiring complicated, manual processes.
