CHAPTER Getting Started on Your FISMA Project 6 He who has begun, is half done. —Horace TOPICS IN THIS CHAPTER • Initiate your project • Analyze your research • Develop the documents • Verify your information • Retain your ethics INTRODUCTION Before you’ll be able to start putting together a Security Package, you’ll need to acquire as much information as possible about the systems or applications you’ll be reporting on. You need to be a good detective, and not lose faith when the details appear unclear.

Hold a Kick-off Meeting Once you have found out who the key players are (the people that have been part of designing, developing, coding, and implementing the information system), you should schedule a Kick-off Meeting and invite them all. Do your best to form good relationships with these folks because you will become reliant on them for information. During the Kick-off Meeting, introduce them to the compliance team and Analyze Your Research explain to them briefly what FISMA is all about. During this first meeting, you should tell them that you will need as much documentation as you can get on the particular information system that is slated for authorization (or reauthorization).

If the proposed security assessment and authorization is for a brand new information system, no prior Security Package will exist, and therefore, it will take longer to prepare the system for the assessment. For a system that is not brand new such as an older information system, a prior Security Package should exist and be available for review. The prior package can be updated which usually doesn’t take as long as writing an entire new package from scratch. New authorizations are required every 3 years.
