Topic: Understanding the Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation Program (CDM) from DHS  

Speaker: Jim Wiggins Executive Director
 Federal IT Security Institute

The Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation (CDM) program is a dynamic approach to fortifying the cybersecurity of government networks and systems.  CDM provides federal departments and agencies with capabilities and tools that identify cybersecurity risks on an ongoing basis, prioritize these risks based upon potential impacts, and enable cybersecurity personnel to mitigate the most significant problems first.  Congress established the CDM program to provide adequate, risk-based, and cost-effective cybersecurity and more efficiently allocate cybersecurity resources.

The CDM program enables government entities to expand and fortify their continuous diagnostic capabilities by increasing their network sensor capacity, automating sensor collections, and prioritizing risk alerts.

This session will focus on the internals of how the CDM program operates.  It covers aspects of how CDM uses automation to help support an organization’s Information Security Continuous Monitoring (ISCM) program.
