The Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation program inaugurated a new era of cybersecurity in government.

The goal of the program, which is being rolled out in three phases, is to help agencies systematically improve the security of their networks and systems, providing not only technical guidance but also easy and affordable access to the necessary cybersecurity tools. However, while the overall structure of the program is straightforward, the execution can be complex.

This event will bring together thought-leaders in cybersecurity to provide agencies with insights into how to implement CDM, with a focus on preparing for the second and third phases of the program, and how to leverage the program to improve your organization’s overall cybersecurity posture.
