Course Overview
And hi everyone. My name is Shaila Rana, and I'm the founder of CyberSecure, a security training and awareness consulting firm. Welcome to my course, Security Governance: FISMA. Cybersecurity breaches affect everyone, and the federal government is not immune from these attacks. These attacks pose a risk to the daily lives of citizens. However, FISMA is created to protect government agencies and any other organizations that do business with the government. Some of the major topics that we will cover include the basic concepts of FISMA, the requirements, the role of NIST, and compliance with this legislation. In this course, you will learn an overview of the Federal Information Security Management Act. Next, you'll learn about who must comply with this rule. We'll also talk about how to comply with FISMA, and then you'll learn about the role of NIST. And then finally, you'll learn about the requirements for compliance, the FISMA implementation project, and the penalties of noncompliance. By the end of this course, you'll understand FISMA and understand how the federal government protects federal information systems and data. FISMA has been in effect since 2002. Federal agencies have a cybersecurity responsibility to protect federal IT systems and federal information. NIST also has a responsibility in creating standards and guidelines. US citizens and federal agency employees must understand the responsibilities outlined in FISMA to protect national security. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn about Security Governance: FISMA.
