FCW Summit: CDM

This event qualifies for 5 CPEs

The Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation program was created in 2012 with the vision that all federal networks should be continuously scanned to identify and respond to threats and breaches.


A tremendous amount has changed in the years since, for both the program itself and the government networks it protects, but that central CDM mission remains.


FCW's 4th Annual CDM Summit will bring together the top government program leaders and essential industry partners to explore what this means in practice for 2020 and beyond.

Discussion topics will include:

  • CDM DEFEND, the task orders under GSA's ALLIANT contracting vehicle that aim to give agencies more flexibility in CDM implementation
  • Deployment plans for the AWARE risk-scoring algorithm
  • The program’s evolving dashboard ecosystem
  • FY20 CDM Program Priorities
  • Adapting CDM to today’s cloud environments
  • How new tools and services can be incorporated into CDM
  • The Approved Product List and CDM SIN
  • Best practices for the agency-integrator partnership
  • CDM’s role in a broader cybersecurity strategy
