Why choosing TONEX as your FSAM Training Provider?

The Federal Segment Architecture Methodology (FSAM) is a step-by-step process for developing and using segment architectures that was developed by distilling proven best practices from across Federal agencies. Use of the FSAM should result in more complete and consistent segment architecture products and will result in greater reuse of segment architectures by providing key information that informs downstream processes for capital planning, security (e.g. certification and accreditation), and the system development life cycle.

Enterprise Architects can leverage TONEX’s 2-day FSAM training course to pragmatically develop segment architectures that support the mission and vision of the enterprise.

As Enterprise or Segment Architects leverage FSAM for multiple segment architecture development efforts, the consistent approach within FSAM will help Enterprise Architects reconcile the segments into an enterprise-wide view of the architecture. In addition, the strategic drivers and prioritization of segments that are defined by Enterprise Architects provide a key input to the FSAM process.

Who Should Attend

FSAM is designed to help architects develop the core elements and attributes that are needed for a complete segment architecture, and is a great tool for all federal agencies. TONEX FSAM training course is suitable for: Enterprise Architects CPIC Professionals Security Professionals Solution Architects


Upon completion of this workshop, the participants will:
  • Understand FSAM and its step-by-step process for developing and using segment architecture that leverages existing “best practice” analysis techniques
  • Review easy-to-use templates to expedite architecture development
  • Review comprehensive toolbox of suggested analytical techniques.
  • Understand analytical techniques that are provided for the outputs of each activity of a process step, as defined in FSAM, and are based on agency best practices that were assessed for inclusion by the FSAWG.
  • Review FSAM outputs that are generalized and may be satisfied by analytical techniques and best practices, as determined by each agency.
  • Review “core FSAM outputs.
