Federal Cybersecurity Update: Managing Information Security Risk Through CDM Continuous Monitoring as a Service
Wednesday, March 19, 2014 | 7:30-10:00AM | International Spy Museum | Washington DC
Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation (CDM) has become essential as attacks on federal networks have become ever more sophisticated, aggressive, and persistent. The CDM Program is intended to transform the way federal organizations manage cyber threats to their networks through strategically sourced tools and services, and to enhance the ability of government to strengthen their cyber networks. This initiative will bring an enterprise approach to continuous diagnostics, and allow consistent application of best practices across a broad range of federal agencies.
This briefing will feature a panel of federal officials on the frontlines of implementing CDM at their agencies and will award CPE’s from George Washington University Center for Excellence in Public Leadership. Also under discussion will be government’s path forward to aligning Federal cybersecurity risk management and acquisition processes.
