CDM DEFEND’s New Approaches for Protecting Networks

    Featured Speakers

    Since 2013, the Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation program has provided federal agencies with IT tools for countering cyberattacks on federal government networks. It is no surprise, however, that over the years attacks on government sites have intensified and become more sophisticated. The program provided by the Department of Homeland Security and the General Services Administration has evolved along with the threat. CDM’s multibillion program provides funds for government organizations to procure software, hardware and services needed to provide continuous protection of civilian agency networks and systems from evolving cyber threats.

    In its new phase CDM DEFEND rolls out tools and services to create a tailored security strategy, as agencies face demands for more visibility and new enterprise dashboards that show how data is protected.

    During this event, cybersecurity experts will discuss such topics as:

    • Opportunities in the new phase of the CDM program
    • Evolution of cyber threats and the tools for repelling them
    • New enterprise agency dashboards and how agencies will be scored
    • How GAO is evaluating agency progress in implementing CDM
    • New focus on cyber hygiene and reducing the vulnerable attack surface
