OMB's reminder on FISMA reporting

The Office of Management and Budget reminded agencies of a few significant additions as they start work on their annual reporting requirements under the Federal Information Security Management Act.

In an annual memorandum, OMB'perhaps a bit earlier than usual in light of recent spate of federal data breaches'told agencies that they must include in their FISMA reports information on computer security and privacy.

Specifically, OMB said the agencies must provide results from an audit of their policies on safeguarding personal identification information, as the White House required in May, and also report on any physical or electronic loss of personally identifiable data, also stemming from a recent OMB memo.

Moreover, the memo requested agency inspectors general to list any systems that may have gone missing.

The reports are due to OMB by Oct. 1.
