Jeff Wagner: Govt-Wide CDM Program Shifts Cyber Response to Real-Time

cybersecuritySome security officials in government believe the second phase of the Department of Homeland Security‘s continuous monitoring program is a key step forward in the adoption of real-time cyber threat response tools, GCN reported Wednesday.

“It’s moving us away from the old generation of defense in depth to a new generation of seeing attacks as they occur,” Jeff Wagner, director of security operations at the Office of Personnel Management, told GCN.

William Jackson writes the Least Privilege and Infrastructure Integrity stage could start in 2015 and will focus on identity and access management to monitor behavior inside federal networks.

CDM Phase 2 also includes development of a standardized approach for agencies to automate security functions as well as bolster communication between siloed systems.

Jackson reports the DHS is evaluating vendors’ offerings to identify products and services that meet the program’s access control, security behavior, privilege, boundary protection and authentication management requirements.
