The most critical component of ensuring the security for an IT system are the efforts following the receipt of an Approval To Operate, continuing to monitor the effectiveness of the system's security controls – continuous monitoring. Recognizing this, in September 2009, NIST will release the new Special Publications 800-37 which places increased emphasis on government agencies to implement effective security continuous monitoring programs (CMP) for your IT systems. OMB will follow this up with increased FISMA reporting requirements in 2010. Will you be ready?
What will make your CMP successful? How do you create your IT CMP in the most cost effective and efficient manner? What strategies, tools, templates and checklists are available to develop and implement this new FISMA requirement into your IT systems? How do you influence resources to support this new requirement? All of these questions will be answered during this workshop by experts who have supported the implementation of security for over 300 Government and Contractor IT systems.
The intended audience for the course is for chief information security officers (CISOs), IT system owners, project managers, information system security officers (ISSOs), and system administrators and any individuals seeking to better understand how to maintain and monitor their IT security within the US Government.
