Jeff Wagner: OPM to Address Access Control After CDM Tools Deployment Completion

cybersecurityJeff Wagner, director of security operations at the Office of Personnel Management, has said OPM will work to lay out new access control measures once it completes work to implement security tools under the Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation program, FCW reported Wednesday.

Wagner said the agency will also investigate the existence of network vulnerabilities after the deployment of CDM tools, according to Sean Lyngaas‘ report.

CDM is a $6 billion contract vehicle that has three phases of deployment for security platforms.

The first phase focuses on the use of tools intended to detect devices that have access to federal networks, while the second phase deals with boundary protection and identity management systems.

Phase three of the CDM program seeks to deploy tools designed for incident response and network protection, Lyngaas reports.
