As an IT Administrator, you may be specifically asked to assist with security issues for interconnecting systems in these ways:
Help explain the technical terms of a MOU/ISA to non-technical business partners
Assist with writing technical portions of a MOU/ISA
Review a MOU/ISA as a member of a Joint Planning Team (particularly, review the system diagrams and system controls to verify that what is stated in a MOU/ISA is valid and advise the Team on feasibility of the requests/terms of the agreements)
System Owners and IT Administrators keep a copy of a completed MOU/ISA to respond to OIG inquiries as needed.
What key ideas do you want to remember from the focus on interconnecting systems?
