Find out which FISMA and NIST cybersecurity provisions you can address with Netwrix Auditor

The Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) defines a framework for ensuring the effectiveness of security controls over information and information systems that support federal operations. To achieve FISMA compliance, all federal agencies and organizations working on behalf of U.S. federal government agencies must meet the minimum security requirements defined in the security standard called FIPS 200.

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) issues standards, guidelines and other publications to assist these federal agencies and other organizations in achieving and maintaining FISMA compliance. In particular, NIST SP 800-53 provides information security controls that fully support FIPS 200 and enable organizations to meet FISMA information security requirements.
