As government agencies work together and share information, the potential for security risks increase. The benefits of this sharing and collaboration are significant, making it essential to secure these connections quickly. The Department of Homeland Security is leading the government-wide effort around Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation (CDM), which, among other things, aims to make connections between government agencies more secure. The program vets a broad array of CDM-related products and then recommends the appropriate software for federal, as well as state and local, agencies. CDM solutions help agencies identify cybersecurity risks on an ongoing basis, prioritize risks based on potential impacts, and enable cybersecurity personnel to mitigate the most significant problems first, allowing the valuable cross-agency communication and sharing to continue.
