First with FISMA certification

Obtaining Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) certification & accreditation for Google Apps is critical to US federal government customers, who must comply with FISMA by law.
Google is the first in the industry to complete FISMA certification for a multi-tenant cloud application.
Google Apps has received an authority to operate at the FISMA-Moderate level; an independent auditor assessed the level of operational risk as Low.
Google's FISMA documentation is available for review by interested agencies. This enables agencies to compare the security of Google Apps to that of existing systems.
