Federal Compliance

Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) Compliance

Our experienced security professionals have completed FISMA assessments for federal agencies and numerous major organizations, including Amazon and AT&T. Our Federal Compliance offerings include detailed recommendations for remediating and/or maintaining compliance. This allows federal agencies to evaluate your security posture against FISMA compliance requirements, industry best practices and a risk-based analysis.

We Know Your Compliance Requirements Have Never Been More Complex, Or More Urgent.

4A Security helps you evaluate, manage and improve your compliance and security posture against  the requirements of National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) SP 800-53 r4 and related frameworks and requirements to result in a FISMA-compliant environment. We perform a comprehensive review of each element in the FISMA compliance regime, including:

  • Administrative Priorities
  • Physical Environmental Controls
  • Configuration Management
  • Policies & Procedures
  • Remediation Plans
  • Certification & Accreditation
  • And much more…

Manage Your Security and Compliance Investment Wisely.

Securing protected data and becoming compliant is of paramount importance, but it does not make sense to spend more on security and compliance than you have to. That’s why 4A Security views all security and privacy programs through the lens of Risk Management, employing a risk-based methodology to design a solution that meets your particular compliance requirements and fits your organization’s size, budget and resources. Our approach is thorough, yet cost-effective.
