FedScoop: CDM’s ‘delicate dance’ helping coronavirus agencies fend off cyberattacks

“The Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation (CDM) program has successfully helped agencies central to the federal coronavirus response fend off opportunistic cyberattacks because it already had the necessary mechanisms in place, the program’s director said.”

“CDM Dynamic and Evolving Federal Enterprise Network Defense (DEFEND) task orders were designed to assist agencies with incident understanding and accelerating development of the program’s capabilities when needed.”

“Network security and management capabilities, including some cloud security efforts, have been accelerated at a number of agencies, Kevin Cox, CDM program manager, said during an ATARC webinar Thursday…”

“CDM has been doing this work on top of its usual mission helping agencies monitor their information technology assets, data access in the cloud and identity lifecycles.”

The program has been largely successful in keeping cloud pilots moving, but a ‘delicate dance’ has ensued with its stepped-up role because it’s only funded for the traditional work, Cox said.” Read the full article here.
