10 I NFORMATION L AYER 10 Requires the “Decoupling” of information from its presentation  Describe data clearly →Sound taxonomy, making it searchable →Adequate meta data making it authoritative  Preparing data for publications →Improve quality, accessibility, timeliness, and usability →Identify and high-value data and content →Evaluate for release to other agencies and the public →Make high-value data discrete and digestible →Assign metadata tags to high-value data →Embed security and privacy controls into structured data and metadata  Expose machine-readable data to other computers (WEB APIs) →Publish high-value data and content timely →Make it easily acceptable for external use as applicable → Post it at agency.gov/developer in machine-readable format Meeting the Information Centric Principle “open data & content information”

11 P LATFORM L AYER IT Shared Services Conceptual Overview “build once, use many times” IT shared service is defined as: An information technology function that is provided for consumption by multiple organizations within or between Federal Agencies. There are three general categories of IT shared services: commodity, support, and mission; which are delivered through cloud-based or legacy infrastructure.* 11 Inter-Agency Lines of Business / Business Centers Intra-Agency Lines Shared Services Centers Commodity IT Websites & Content Management Infrastructure & Asset Management , Help Desk, & Collaboration Records Management H.

12 P RESENTATION L AYER 12 Meeting the Customer Centric Principle “anytime, anywhere, any device”  Customer Centric means that agencies: →Respond to customer needs →Make it easy to find and share information and accomplish important tasks.  Digital services must be designed and delivered with: →Customer service first →Technologies used by customers, i.e. – today’s customers, today’s technologies →Content optimized for modern platforms, rather than just translating content from paper-based documents to the Web →Agencies keeping current with the latest design concepts and refreshing delivery mechanism to ensure the highest performance  Identifying and optimizing top tasks, content, and transactions  Optimizing for usability, search, and accessibility “Customers don’t know – and don’t care to know – how government is organized. So why make them go from agency [website] to agency [website] to get the full picture of what gov’t has to offer on any subject?”* * Source: D IGITAL G OVERNMENT : B UILDING A 21 ST C ENTURY P LATFORM TO B ETTER S ERVE THE A MERICAN P EOPLE (M AY 23, 2012)

13 S ECURITY AND P RIVACY Meeting the Security and Privacy Principles “Cross-Agency Priority Goal: Cybersecurity”*  Goal Statement: Executive branch departments and agencies will achieve 95% implementation of the Administration’s priority cybersecurity capabilities by the end of FY 2014  Focus efforts on: →what data and information is entering and exiting their networks, →what components are on their information networks and when their security status changes, and →who is on their systems.  Administration Priorities for Meeting the Goals →Trusted Internet Connections (TIC) - Consolidate external Internet traffic and ensure a set of common security capabilities for situational awareness and enhanced monitoring. →Continuous Monitoring of Federal Information Systems - Transform the historically static security control assessment and authorization process into an integral part of a dynamic enterprise-wide risk management process. →Strong Authentication – Ensure only authorized employees have access to Federal information systems by requiring a higher level of assurance following the HSPD-12 Personal Identity Verification standard 13 * Source:
