Federal agencies are rated annually based on results of the annual FISMA audit process. To assist agencies in implementing FISMA, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) develops and issues standards, guidelines and publications including the NIST Special Publication 800 Series as well as the Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS). The NIST SP 800 Series provides guidance that federal agencies must follow to secure their information assets. Approved by the Secretary of Commerce and required by FISMA, FIPS 199: Information Systems Security Categorization and FIPS 200: Minimum Information Security Requirements are compulsory and binding for federal agencies – meaning they must be complied with.
