Learn the firmware security best practices that will help you build a stronger security program and comply with FISMA and NIST standards.
FISMA, and the NIST documents supporting it, repeatedly underscore the importance of firmware security as part of a modern security program. This guide walks through the requirements that the law establishes in regard to firmware, and provides practical guidance and recommendations to comply with FISMA and NIST standards and build a stronger security program.
In this 10-page guide you’ll learn:
- How FISMA requirements relate to firmware security
- Ways to evaluate your firmware attack surface
- How to categorize your devices and assess their susceptibility
- Steps to selecting and implementing controls
- Which NIST 800-53 controls map to firmware security
- Tools that can help you comply with FISMA and NIST standards
