Rsam to Host FISMA Compliance Seminar in Washington, DC

Secaucus, New Jersey – Rsam, the industry-leading provider of Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) platforms, will be hosting a seminar on FISMA Compliance in Washington, DC on November 13, 2014. The seminar, to be held at the Marriott Renaissance Downtown, will feature a presentation from the US Department of Health and Human Services.

The Rsam FISMA Compliance Seminar will bring together agencies, federal contractors, and organizations affected by FISMA regulations to share insights and strategies in preparing for future challenges of FISMA compliance. John Hartmann, IT Security Manager at the US Department of Health and Human Services will deliver a case study of how their agency leveraged automation and best practices to successfully meet these challenges. Other presentations will address the current FISMA landscape and technologies for FISMA automation.

First enacted in 2002, FISMA was an effort to safeguard the nation’s infrastructure by requiring government agencies to develop, document, and implement an information security program to protect the critical systems. Since then, there have been several amendments to FISMA including a significant change to NIST 800-53 controls with the release of rev 4, and FISMA continues to evolve. As a result, those organizations that are dependent on rigid tools and old technology are finding themselves unable to adapt to FISMA’ s continuous updates without facing massive amounts of redundant work and potentially losing historical data. Additionally, these organizations are not just looking to be compliant, but are focused on continuous monitoring and improvement. This event will highlight how agencies and leading organizations are leveraging Rsam to overcome these challenges and adapt to change regulatory and business needs.
