• Federal Cybersecurity Update: Managing Information Security Risk Through CDM Continuous Monitoring as a Service

    120:00 | Recorded on Mar 19, 2014

    Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation (CDM) has become essential as attacks on federal networks have become increasingly 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.
