Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) February 3, 2010
In a recent survey conducted by the (ISC)2**, The Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) is viewed as having a very positive effect, however, two in five federal CISOs believe it has become misdirected and a strain on organizational resources¹. A FISMA compliance approach that relies on manual and labor-intensive processes can lead to increased paperwork and elec¬tronic documents that become extra weight for CISOs to manage and ultimately leave wide gaps open to IT security risks. By implementing an IT risk-based approach to FISMA compliance, organizations can streamline their reporting processes and achieve efficiency while reducing operational compliance costs.
In a webinar titled: Six Critical Elements to Achieve Pain Free FISMA Compliance, Lumension, the global leader in endpoint management and security, outlines six critical elements to help government organizations make FISMA compliance sustainable by implementing the right technology and processes. The webinar includes a panel of industry experts including President and Risk and Compliance Advisor Michael Rasmussen, Corporate Integrity, and Lumension's Director of Solution Marketing Jeff Hughes and Vice President of Federal Solutions Steve Antone.
