Federal Information Security Modernization Act (FISMA) Policies and Procedures | Remediation | Templates, Writing Services | NIST 800-53| DoD

As a federal contractor, compliance with the Federal Information Security Modernization Act (FISMA) requires a large number of information security policies and procedures to be in place. Without them, FISMA compliance is simply unattainable. From a remediation perspective, developing information security policies and procedures is often the biggest challenge facing DoD contractors. Why? Because writing policies is an incredibly time-consuming and laborious process for a DoD contractor.
Arlington’s extensive information security policy writing services for FISMA compliance includes industry leading templates, toolkits, and policy writing services for federal contractors. The end result – high quality, well-written documentation that meets the strict requirements for FISMA reporting. Remediating policy gaps quickly and comprehensively is one of our signature services when it comes to FISMA compliance.

We also offer expertise in terms of correcting security, technical, and/or operational control issues often found during a FISMA scoping & gap assessment. From re-configuring information systems to conducting tabletop exercises – and more – whatever the gaps are, you can be confident that Arlington can assist in providing essential remediation solutions.

Federal Compliance Experts for FISMA Policy Writing

Writing information security policies and procedures for FISMA compliance is often seen as a laborious, taxing, and expensive exercise. Arlington’s experience and deep understanding of FISMA reporting allows for a quick, efficient, and cost-effective solution when it comes to essential policy and procedures development.
And because FISMA reporting requirements (in terms of framework controls) are derived from NIST Special Publication 800-53 Revision 5, Security and Privacy Controls for Information Systems and Organizations, you’ll find our policy documentation to be incredibly comprehensive, allowing for crossover and mapping for helping fulfill not only FISMA reporting, but other federal reporting mandates (i.e., eMASS RMF for cleared contractors, DFARS NIST 800-171, CMMC, etc.).

Control Framework Walkthrough

Earning FISMA compliance and subsequent Authority to Operate (ATO) designation (if needed) ultimately means complying with NIST SP 800-53, the federal government’s widely adopted information security framework. NIST SP 800-53 is an incredibly comprehensive and granular InfoSec framework, consisting of (as of Revision 5), twenty (20) control “Families”, with hundreds of supporting controls.

One-for-One Match to NIST 800-53 control “Families”

The NIST SP 800-53 publication contains twenty (20) control “Families”, each of them requiring a high degree of documentation for ensuring full compliance with their respective controls. Arlington’s policy development methodology follows a strict adherence of mapping to all NIST SP 800-53 control “Families”, giving you the confidence of having all required policies and procedures in place for FISMA.

Highly Customized Policies

As a federal contractor, your business is unique to you, and so should your information security policies and procedures. Arlington uses a proven methodology for quickly and comprehensively developing highly customized FISMA information security documentation.

Project Management Remediation & Validation

Becoming FISMA compliant requires much more than just policies. Specifically, a number of the prescriptive twenty (20) control “Families” require in-depth documentation that’s much more than just a simple policy template. Specifically, as a federal contractor, you’ll need an Incident Response Plan, BCDRP/CP Plan, Supply Chain Plan, and more. Arlington has extensive experience in developing such documentation.
