Innovation in Government: Cyber Leaders and CDM

Date: Tuesday, April 2, 2019
2 p.m. ET
1 hour
No Fee
Accreditation: Training Certificate for 1 CPE*


Since its inception in 2013, the federal government’s Continuous Diagnostic and Mitigation program (CDM), led by the Department of Homeland Security, has helped agencies discover up to 50 percent more assets inside their systems than they were previously aware of. And they’re able to do it in real time.

That is important because many of today’s threats are not coming from traditional IP addresses like desktops or laptops. They can enter a system through TV sets and mobile devices.

But as each threat is vanquished, a new one quickly surfaces. And there is a particularly difficult new trend that’s taking hold.

Technology leaders from the Department of Homeland Security, NASA, Interior Department, Forescout Technologies, Gigamon and FireEye come together to address the evolution of CDM to meet new challenges and provide new capabilities for agencies. 

Learning objectives:
  • The current state of CDM in federal agencies
  • How CDM is improving cybersecurity
  • The effort by DHS, GSA and vendors are approving the ability for agencies to be up and running quicker
