Many have debated that efforts such as FISMA, have done little to prevent the epidemic of data compromise, identify theft, espionage and more identifies the key issues and provides a long-term goal of creating a secure cyber infrastructure. 

However, with recent changes to FISMA to include the reporting on:

  • Number of new systems went live in a reporting period
  • Number of new systems used 800-53 controls as system design requirements?
  • Number of new systems used 800-53A in the process of system acceptance testing?
  • Numbers of contract systems have the FISMA requirements in the contract or equivalent language?

There is a new effort to get ahead of the curve and integrate the Security into the Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC) and overall system design.  This discussion will touch on areas of opportunity as it relates to SSA and Federal Compliance.
