According to the Department of Homeland Security, the CDM program “is a dynamic approach to fortifying the cybersecurity of government networks and systems. [It] provides DHS, along with federal agencies, the capabilities and tools to identify cybersecurity risks on an ongoing basis.” This 30-minute program will bring together thought leaders from the public and private sectors to talk CDM culture, best practices, and challenges. It will include topics like the phases of CDM, how agencies work with DHS to effectively deploy the program, and the push for acquisition strategies designed to more effectively keep the government’s critical data safe.
