FISMA compliance services as well as FISMA compliant hosting are at the core of our unique offerings for our government cloud hosting clients.

The Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) is a federal law that outlines requirements designed to strengthen information system security for federal agencies, bureaus, departments and supporting entities such as vendors and subcontractors. Increasingly, and for various reasons, non-federal agencies such as state and local governments have been integrating FISMA requirements into their own policies.

AISN’s FISMA compliance services were developed with federal and state government agencies, independent software vendors, systems integrators and value-added resellers in mind.

In conjunction with independent auditor KirkpatrickPrice, LLC, AISN’s team of compliance experts can help you build your own IT audit, implement regulatory controls, prepare for your next FISMA audit and/or get training to challenge and subsequently assist in preventing future deficiencies related to FISMA, HIPAA/HITECH, PCI DSS, SOX and a range of additional regulatory standards.

FISMA Compliance Services

You don’t need to be in AISN’s 100% compliant cloud hosting environment to ask us for help with your in-house IT audit. We provide Compliance-as-a-Service.

Why FISMA Compliance Services and Hosting?

The Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) requires U.S. federal government agencies to implement and support standardized IT security controls as defined by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). This applies to all agency IT systems that support the operations and assets of the agency. The FISMA security framework provides the common standards that agencies require to outsource confidently their critical applications to SaaS and managed hosting providers.
