USGCB Compliance

Federal agencies need to demonstrate USGCB compliance with this government security initiative

The United States Government Configuration Baseline (USGCB) is a United States government-wide initiative that guides federal agencies on what they can do to improve and maintain effective configuration settings focusing primarily on security. This initiative aims to create security configuration baselines for IT and security products, specifically on desktops and laptops, deployed across federal agencies. While it's not a standalone regulation like FISMA, USGCB compliance is a core requirement of FISMA.

Here's how Rapid7 can help you with USGCB compliance:
