Pros: IAP affords data orchestration capabilities that serve to "future-proof" Security Authorization efforts at the ACMG. For example, the ACMG holds three concurrent Authorizations To Operate (ATO) from the NIH/NICHD following the NIST Risk Management Framework Version 4 (two RMF4 Moderate and one RMF4 Low Risk-Category). Given that RMF5 is pending, previous labor-intensive efforts updating Security Authorization (SA) documentation from RMF3 to RMF4 to comply with FISMA can be supported using IAP, thereby saving a tremendous amount of resource. The ACMG's SA requires maintaining three concurrent ATOs so migrating and mapping the myriad of NIST Security Controls for three System Security Plans (SSP) to comply with FISMA RMF4 using IAP has proven to be incredibly powerful. Using IAP to migrate from RMF3 to RMF4 also helped the ACMG's Designated Accrediting Authority (DAA) centralize Security Control Responses for all three ATOs . Now, within a single, securely hosted environment, IAP can afford the ACMG with the ability to accommodate RMF5 changes using data orchestrations. Additionally, IAP also affords the ability to work both Synchronously (face-to-face in small groups) and asynchronously (remotely) to perform Audits, generate POA&Ms, and to generate reports. This too has proven to save resources.

Cons: The least liked feature of the software was IAP's Artifact Management workflow with respect to how uploads are performed. ACMG SA staff have requested a "drag-and-drop" interface to replace the current directory-based upload interface.

Overall: The ACMG provides ATO Maintenance for systems that support researchers nationwide that participate in the Newborn Screening Translational Research Network (NBSTRN) under Federal Contract. The underlying OMB, FIPS and FISMA requirements obliged the ACMG to implement SA workflows that include such tasks as: 1) Annual Audits by Independent Panel of Experts; 2) Secure Change-Control Management; 3) Annual Self-Assessments of Security Controls; and 4) ongoing review and upgrades to all pertinent SA documentation that underpin SSPs, POA&Ms, SARs etc. The ACMG Enterprise Security Team implemented and populated IAP two years ago. This resulted in the opportunity to both standardize and centralize SA work products. Using IAP, the ACMG's FISMA Control Board performed Year 1 and Year 2 Audits of Self-Assessments of Security Control Results successfully to maintain two FISMA Moderate ATOs (i.e., 4 audits) and the DAA likewise performed the Year 1 and Year 2 Audits of Self-Assessments of Security Control Results successfully to maintain the ATO for the FISMA Low Risk-Category (i.e., 2 audits). IAP was also used to support a total of twelve quarterly ATO Maintenance submissions over the past two years with 100 percent success. Currently the ACMG maintains a 99% completion percentage rate for a total of 758 Security Controls and a myriad of associated Security Control Enhancements across three systems. IAP also affords the ability to record, track and monitor over 250 known deficiencies.

Ignyte Team is releasing Drag and Drop capabilities on Artifact Management in Q4 of 2018 to make the software much more user friendly and enhancing the functionality of the software. Along with Artifact Management, Ignyte team is also planning on providing other features such as vulnerability management and threat management.
