The work: Identifying and correcting security weaknesses in mission-critical systems and devising a new approach to security based on continuous monitoring.

The nuts and bolts: Csulak adapted DHS’ existing security metrics to a continuous monitoring process. He also identified common security controls being used for multiple information systems, making it possible to streamline testing and documentation departmentwide.
