Mandated by the Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) of 2002, NIST created the special publication 800-53 to provide guidelines on security controls for Federal Information Systems. Upon approval as FIPS 200-expected late in 2005-all systems at civilian federal agencies, with the exception of systems designed for national security, must comply with the security controls detailed within the document. To comply with FIPS 200, the IT departments of these organizations must implement strategies and processes to:

  • Assure service levels, policy compliance and appropriate risk management
  • Secure all assets and services

  • Reduce the cost and complexity of heterogeneous IT infrastructure management
