GCN : October 2014
20 GCN OCTOBER 2014 • GCN.COM Before June 2013, victims of domestic violence in Alamance County, N.C ., had trouble securing protective orders. Women and children had to run a gauntlet to secure an order, and the coordination of services among enforcement agencies added delays. Plus, the whole process took so long some victims had to forego services just to make it to the county seat to get their order. Chief district court judge Jim Roberson uses videoconferencing to hear a domestic violence victim’s request for a protective order. County justice network shields abuse victims In Alamance County, domestic violence victims can use web video to obtain protective orders — and stay safe SAMROBERTS/TIMES-NEWS lowered the price of storage from about 9 cents per GB per month to 3.3 cents per GB per month, AWS noted. The SPAWAR team also helped estab- lish the security groundwork for transi- tioning military IT systems to the cloud. “There are special complexities in defining and developing security best practices in the DOD space — based on industry standards — for an IaaS, which include efforts to coordinate and align the various policies and guidance which currently exists to deliver a practical and cost effective service,” Groves said. The SPAWAR team hasn’t been alone in the cloud endeavor. SPAWAR, Groves said, coordinated its effort across poli- cies from a number of organizations, including the DON CIO, the Defense Information Systems Agency, the Federal Risk and Authorization Manage- ment Program, the National Institute of Standards and Technology, the DOD Information Assurance Certification and Accreditation Process and the Commit- tee on National Security Systems. With the commercial cloud policy, process and architecture in place, SPAWAR anticipates additional gains. “We expect that as we deploy in com- mercial cloud environments, we will have more standardization and an ability to better manage our enterprise,” Groves said. “Additionally, we expected that other cloud service providers ... would make themselves available once the service model was established.” Groves said those expectations are being realized. “This will ultimately help drive additional capabilities and cost sav- ings into the DOD enterprise,” he added. — Karen D.
