Budgets are stretched to the breaking point around the nation and federal guidelines for grant recipients are becoming more complex. For example, state and local agencies that collect, store, process, transmit, or use information on behalf of federal agencies and/or partners must comply with the Federal Information Security Management Act, or FISMA, the Federal government’s approach to mitigating risk to the government’s IT infrastructure.
Did you know that if you are not FISMA compliant, you may be turned down for millions of dollars in grant funds?
Many state and local entities depend on federally funded programs administered by agencies such as Health and Human Services (HHS), Department of Labor (DOL), Department of Education (ED), and many others. These guidelines mandate sophisticated tools, policies, and practices for cybersecurity and privacy protection. The risks of non-compliance can be severe – and can cut off access to critical funding streams.
Join Government Technology and the Center for Digital Government for a live webcast to learn about steps you can take to address critical FISMA requirements.
Join us to learn:
