CLOUD CYBERSECURITY BRANCH
The Cloud Cybersecurity Branch (C2B), under the Data and Software Services Division (DSD), enables digital overmatch by accelerating the Army’s transition to cloud technologies, with a focus on cybersecurity policy, in support of the 2019 Army Modernization Strategy. C2B provides decision makers with risk-informed policy and recommendations by modernizing the cybersecurity authorization process and decreasing time to field cloud-based solutions through the execution of a lean risk management process. Key tasks include modernizing ATO processes to capitalize on cloud-enabled DevSecOps practices, aligning cybersecurity policy to strategic guidance, Congressional requirements, and establishing compliance reporting for all Army cloud environments.
The Cloud Services Division instantiates and provides ongoing operations and maintenance for the set of cARMY common shared services in the cARMY Cloud Service Provider environments (Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure). These common services are established to support each information impact level (IL 2/4/5 today, with IL 6 work underway now). Additionally, the Cloud Services Division establishes and maintains the set of access and border security services for the cARMY environment, including the Virtual Data Security Stack and the availability of cARMY user access to the environments through the Cloud Access Points.
Common Shared Services for cARMY enable applications to function in the hosting environment and are centrally managed by the ECMA. Providing centralized Common Shared Services reduces costs and reduces barriers to cloud adoption by preparing the environment for all applications. The ECMA presently delivers 31 Common Shared Services in cARMY and will update and modify these as Army needs dictate.
Visit the ECMA milSuite page (CAC Required) in order to view all 31 Common Services Support cloud applications.
The Cloud Management Division handles the financial operations, external communications, business processes, acquisition efforts, and technical architecture for the Enterprise Cloud Modernization Office. These efforts are focused on ensuring the required vendor services are available via contracts awarded based on focused acquisition efforts, ensuring business processes are defined across stakeholders—with automated workflows in defined systems—to allow ECMA to effectively meet customers’ needs in each phase of the customer’s journey. ECMA ensures concise, informative, and educational communications are provided to all Army audiences, and has an overall technical architecture allowing all aspects of the cARMY environment to function effectively.
DEVSECOPS AND DATA SERVICES
As a division of ECMA, Data and Software Services Division will provide data and development security operations (DevSecOps) products and services for the Army. This will include data discovery and operationalization of the end-to-end data acquisition and analysis process. This also includes the fielding of the Army’s Code Resource and Transformation Environment (CReATE), a continuous integration/continuous delivery pipeline for Army software product teams, which is currently in minimum viable product (MVP) development. The division will provide DevSecOps services, architecture, and product management leadership for designing, testing, and fielding software across each mission area.
