The US Federal Government’s Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation (CDM) program is one of the most important and widely discussed cybersecurity initiatives. In the face of high-profile breaches and increasingly sophisticated hackers, the CDM program is positioned to become more valuable as legislators pressure agencies to strengthen defensive capabilities.

By 2017, the program aims to provide Federal Departments and Agencies (D/As) with the tools to strengthen network security and maintain a heightened risk awareness and assessment capability to rapidly respond to threats. In this session we will share about how the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) design and roll out such a comprehensive risk and security management solution and it’s implications and lessons we can learn from here.
