FISMA is a procedural framework in which NIST 800-53 Security Controls
are applied.

http://csrc.nist.gov/publications/nistpubs/800-53/SP800-53.pdf

 

UAB has done some similar assessments for NIH Human Subject Contracts -
investigators have expected us to supply some template language to plug
in to their grants, while the actual requirements call for  detailed
description of the data flow, state of information at each point in the
flow, and all applicable management, technical, and physical controls.

For those of you who do research with the Veterans Administration, have
any of you been able to gather specific requirements for the very recent
requirements to comply with FISMA? As some of you may know, we have been
given requirements, and not much time to become compliant!

I have some reference documents:
http://www.research.va.gov/resources/policies/docs/PI-Certification.pdf
and http://csrc.nist.gov/policies/FISMA-final.pdf, and
http://csrc.nist.gov/publications/nistpubs/800-37/SP800-37-final.pdf.

If some of you are interested, this might be something that we could
organize an audio telecon around.
