FISMA is the Federal Information Security Management Act. It is a high-level law that mandates a level of cybersecurity for all federal agencies and federal contractors. It was enacted by Congress in 2002 and updated in 2014.

While FISMA delegates cybersecurity responsibility to the various federal departments and agencies, it also centralizes a significant amount of cybersecurity functions (including mandates) to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and leaves the nitty-gritty standards and guidelines to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to hammer out.
