FITSP-A Module 2 Government Laws Leadership Government likes to begin things to declare grand new programs and causes and national objectives. But good beginnings are not the measure of success. What matters in the end is completion. Performance. Results. Not just making promises, but making good on promises. In my Administration, that will be the standard from the farthest regional office of government to the highest office of the land. President George W. Bush My Administration is committed to creating an unprecedented level of
openness in Government. We will work together to ensure the public trust and establish a system of transparency, public participation, and collaboration. Openness will strengthen our democracy and promote efficiency and effectiveness in Government. - President Barack Obama FITSP-A Exam Objectives: Security Topic: Regulatory & Standards Compliance A FITSP-Auditor is expected to understand and to be able to apply: Audit strategies for compliance with the organizations information security program Identify and stay current on all laws, regulations, standards, and best practices applicable to the organization Oversee relationships with all regulatory information security
