Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA)
Who must be FISMA compliant?
All government agencies, government contractors, and organizations that exchange data directly with government systems must be FISMA compliant. This may include such diverse entities as data clearinghouses, state government departments, and government military subcontractors in cases where data is exchanged directly with Federal government systems.
Who is responsible for FISMA compliance?
Agency program officials, chief information officers, chief information security officers, senior agency officials for privacy, and inspectors general.
What are the FISMA Data Destruction requirements?
What are the consequences of non-compliance?
FISMA holds federal agencies and government contractors accountable to secure government information. Failure to pass a FISMA inspection can result in:
- Significant administrative sanctions
- Unfavorable publicity
- Reduction of IT budget
How can e-End keep government contractors in compliance?
e-End can ensure your organization that all data on the computers, copiers, printers and other devices in your office is destroyed and cannot be recovered by any means.
In addition to being NAID AAA Certified for sanitizing data on all electronic and non-paper media (including hard drives, flash drives and cell phones), we also adhere to NSA and NIST 800-88R1 guidelines for data destruction to ensure you’ll remain compliant with the FISMA rules.
After our services have been completed, you’ll be issued a Certificate of Certified Data Sanitization and Certificate of Recycling for your records.
For organizations with data for destruction that, due to security reasons, cannot leave your facility, we can perform all data sanitization services onsite at your office or facility with no disruption.
Contact us today to learn more about how we can keep you compliant with FISMA and other regulations.
