Eight years into the Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation (CDM) program, agencies have reported significant strides in adoption – but fear adversaries are still out-pacing their best efforts to keep up on cybersecurity. Now more than ever, in the COVID-19 era, the program must quickly evolve to protect vital cloud and mobile environments that underpin Federal telework at scale.
In a recent study, “CDM, The Next Chapter“, MeriTalk surveyed more than 100 Federal and industry stakeholders to catalog CDM progress and chart the path forward for the program. In the webinar where Kevin Cox, CDM Program Manager, CISA, Department of Homeland Security offered his perspective on the study findings including:
- What key steps are needed to apply CDM principles to cloud and mobile devices?
- How are technologies like automation and zero trust critical to program success?
- How can integration with other cybersecurity initiatives – such as TIC 3.0 – help agencies progress?
