BindView Presents IT Security Compliance Best Practices for the Certification and Accreditation Process
“C&A and Configuration Management: The Rest of the Story”
The C&A process is well-known by federal agencies as a highly manual process that artificially increases costs and delays, and isolates resulting data from other systems that might benefit from its use. The webinar will cover new methodologies and technologies for integrating the C&A process with an organization's IT security compliance and automation efforts to achieve success in meeting regulatory mandates and significantly reduce costs and delays.
It will also feature real-world stories drawn from federal organizations that have successfully implemented these approaches for meeting IT security compliance, while lowering costs and increasing the overall effectiveness of the C&A process.
Thursday, June 16, 2005, at 10:00 a.m. EST (9:00 a.m. CST, 7:00 a.m. PST)
Who Should Participate:
Federal IT managers and directors with responsibilities for ensuring organizations meet and maintain IT security compliance requirements. Participants will hear real-world experiences and receive critical information to:
-- Leverage security assessment data, Plan of Action and Milestones (POA&M) information and configuration management reporting as supporting documentation for the Accreditation Package.
-- Automate configuration and compliance monitoring at different levels of priority based on classification, while creating a more consistent, comparable and repeatable assessment of security controls for federal information systems.
-- Significantly reduce the cost of C&A by creating and maintaining an agency-wide information security program that promotes the re-use and sharing of security assessment-related information.
-- Gain a better understanding of assessment tools available to guide the C&A process and automatically generate required reporting.
-- Leverage NIST standards in the C&A process and determine the proper level of controls based on system classification.
-- Increase efficiencies in the Security Certification and Continuous Monitoring Phases of the C&A process.
