Robin Gandhi on making FISMA compliance decisions

Host Kevin Greene and guest Robin Gandhi, an associate professor of information assurance at the University of Nebraska at Omaha, discuss Federal Information Security Management Act compliance and governance improvements in the federal government.

Gandhi and his team have completed initial research to determine software assurance applicability for FISMA security controls. This work will help federal agencies address system engineering and development activities early in the software development process. Federal agencies will be able to use this work as an appendix in NIST SP 800-160 by the end of 2015.
