I know FISMA is built off of NIST but are there specific standards for FISMA and can I download them to run in 10.5 or do I need to upgrade to 11?
also how painful is the upgrade. May last 3 upgrades were from hell.. Im an original bindview owner and seems there was a lack of expert integration when symantec took over. Since things are running fine I hesitate to upgrade.
In CCS 10.5.1, FISMA Regulations (Section 301- Information Security) are included in the Content Studio (see page 850 of the User Guide), under Mandates. Regulations are a subset of Mandates. Instructions are provided on how to manage and activate the content.
Excerpt from p 850 of CCS 10.5.1 User Guide...
A mandate is a regulation or framework with which you must comply. The
Symantec Content Studio includes predefined mandates you can use as a model
for your custom mandates. The Content Studio also lets you create the custom
mandates that fit your specific needs. You can also map custom mandates to
Symantec-created or custom control statements in the Content Studio. Any
regulation or framework is a mandate.
You can activate or deactivate a mandate as per your organizational requirements.
Only an active mandate is taken into consideration for metric calculation for
Policy Manager, reports, and dashboards. However,whenyou deactivate a mandate,
the entry of the mandate is not deleted from the reporting database. An inactive
mandate is still used for the trending panels.
You can activate or deactivate a mandate by selecting the relevant option from
the right-click menu. The right-click menu also contains the options to view all
the mandates or only the active mandates in your organization.
