At the system level, the probability of the entire ERP system usage failure can be obtained by quantitative evaluation of the fault tree, thus making it possible for executives of the hosting organisation to make informed decisions on ERP project initiation, termination and high-level system requirement and scope changes. At the component level, the implications of fault tree analysis depend on the approach that was adopted in fault tree construction. There are two basic approaches, which a third one is the mix of them. The difference in these two approaches is that the second requires one to incorporate the root causes to component failures into the fault tree and thus directly assess the impact of these root causes on system failure, while the first approach indicates that the causes are either too elusive to be included in the fault tree or will be identified on a later

Following our initial assessment we will provide recommendations for the “to be” RMF IA and C&A program by providing DLA J6 with the analysis of alternatives (AoA) on courses of action (COAs) for the current IA C&A program. Part of this initial assessment is to address key risk areas across DLA Global Enterprise Architecture and supply chains to look at best practices for mitigation procedures that minimize the operational risks posed from cyber threats to the DLA Global Enterprise Architecture. Following our initial assessment we will incorporate the “to be” RMF IA and C&A program across which will standardize, and centralize, the program while grounding it in Industry standards and best practices. The RMF mandated transition is already in the implementation phase and a strategy will have to managed and complied with to continue the transition through to completion. This strategy represents the DOD IT and DODI 8510.01 policy signed into effect in March 2014 aligns the DOD agencies (DLA) through the standardized use of the NIST 800-37 and 800-53 publications and the CNSSI 1253.
