Federal Information Security Modernization Act (FISMA)

The Federal Information Security Modernization Act of 2014 (FISMA 2014) updates the Federal Government's cybersecurity practices by:

  • Codifying Department of Homeland Security (DHS) authority to administer the implementation of information security policies for non-national security federal Executive Branch systems, including providing technical assistance and deploying technologies to such systems;
  • Amending and clarifying the Office of Management and Budget's (OMB) oversight authority over federal agency information security practices; and by
  • Requiring OMB to amend or revise OMB A-130 to "eliminate inefficient and wasteful reporting."
