The cyber-attack surface has exploded to include more than just hardware and on premises devices. This can make implementing CDM and achieving success even more difficult-- one of the most common challenges has always been finding the time and resources to do so.
So how are agency cyber leaders keeping up?
While the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency’s Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation (CDM) program is now a dozen years old, it has always been intended as a comprehensive, risk-based security approach that enables federal agencies to quickly address threats in their environment.
For instance, CISA is looking to expand the program into providing tools to protect devices in the Internet of Things (IoT) and operations technology (OT) that historically had not been connected to the internet but now are rapidly being made more accessible.
Another way the CDM program is evolving is by becoming more modular and “more of a data-centric type of activity beyond just a toolset activity,” according to Richard Grabowski, the CDM deputy program manager. And cybersecurity professionals and technology asset managers alike should be aware of CDM Vulnerability Management (VUL) Capability.
Join us as thought leaders from government and industry discuss how the CDM program is changing to reflect the evolving threat environment and how agencies are working toward CDM success, despite the expanding attack surface.
Learning Objectives
  • Identify the components of an effective CDM compliance program for your agency, including confirming assets are functioning properly and tracking changes or additions to your assets
  • Evaluate the role that automation can play in the asset discovery and visibility process
  • Outline approaches that reduce your agency’s threat surface and improve response capabilities
  • Learn from peers how they’ve been able to keep up with the evolution of CDM
