Cybersecurity & Information Assurance

Client

Walter Reed Army Medical Center (WRAMC)

Description

WRAMC was the Army’s largest healthcare facility, and one of the largest in the Department of Defense (DoD).  The installation encompassed approximately 113 acres, and the facility served as Headquarters for the Northern Region Medical Command (NRMC).  WRAMC employed more than 8,000 military, civilian, and contractor personnel, and had more than 600,000 patient visits a year to its main hospital and satellite clinics.

The facility provided medical care to active duty personnel, the wounded warrior, retirees, and their dependents.  It also provided leadership, planning, and support for the 40 Army hospitals and clinics in the region and was responsible for about 25 percent of the Army’s patient load in the United States.  The Directorate of Information Management (DOIM) provided direct and indirect support for over 17,000 users in 13 NRMC Regional Military Treatment Facilities.

The Challenge

WRAMC required information assurance (IA) support as part of a migration of applications and systems from WRAMC to the newly established Joint Medical Domain servicing the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Military Health System (MHS) medical missions as part of Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC). 

The Solution

tiag’s IA personnel categorized each application/system and built the appropriate Certificate of Networthiness or DoD Information Assurance Certification and Accreditation Process (DIACAP) package to facilitate its migration.  Prior to each migration, all systems and applications required either a DIACAP signed by the MHS or a risk assessment.  tiag assisted in determining the appropriate accreditation path for each system during our surveying process.  This saved the IA department significant time, and the information our engineers captured serviced as the basis for the each DIACAP package created.

Additionally, due to a change mandated by the Joint Task Force National Capital Region Medical, our IA professionals adjusted mid-course and updated every DIACAP package to account for the difference between the DoD and MHS DIACAP artifacts and standards. 

The Result

tiag migrated applications and systems to the Joint Medical Domain, as part of BRAC.  tiag’s cybersecurity and IA experts gathered the system requirements and design specifications, built the accreditation packages, scanned and remediated the systems.
