University Strengthens IT Security Through FISMA Assessment
University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio wanted to comply with FISMA as required by new externally-funded research projects, gain better understanding of what FISMA compliance entails and learn best practices for improving research-specific operational security. They chose Cisco to overcome these challenges. Cisco FISMA Risk Assessment Service brings knowledge and expertise for compliance and detailed assessment of security and risk controls identifies areas for improvement. The results of deploying Cisco were received approval to move forward with multimillion dollar research projects, simplified compliance for future projects with reusable assessment template and improved overall IT security by addressing deficiencies identified during assessment.
