White Paper: Using STIGs to Accelerate CDM Compliance 

August 1, 2021

Accelerate CDM compliance and reimagine your traditional network security

As part of the Executive Order on Improving the Nation’s Cybersecurity (Executive Order), Federal Civilian Executive Branch (FCEB) Agencies need to establish or update their Memoranda of Agreement with CISA for the CDM (Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation) program ensure that the object level data are available and accessible to CISA. The focus on object-level data means that FCEB agencies need to strengthen their Hardware Asset Management (HWAM) programs. The first step is to discover all connected devices, including traditional endpoints like workstations and newer technologies like connected printers, mobile phones, Internet of Things (IoT) devices, and operational technology (OT).

CDM compliance requires agencies to put NIST 800-53 controls in place. Although they can use any security baselines found in the National Checklist Registry, using Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) Secure Technical Control Implementation Guides (STIGs) is a strong foundation for hardening systems. However, implementing STIGs often drains resources. That’s where SteelCloud can help.
