Report: DHS to Introduce Federal Dashboard for Cybersecurity

The Department of Homeland Security will introduce a government-wide dashboard in October to compile data from federal agencies that currently use sensor networks and dashboards within their organizations, GCN reported Monday.

Jeanette Manfra, assistant secretary at DHS’ cybersecurity office, said at a Professional Services Council-hosted event held Monday the federal dashboard represents the next step in the department’s continuous diagnostics and mitigation program.

The dashboard is designed to help an agency access information about server vulnerabilities and warn other agencies about the potential security threats.

The report noted that multiple agencies built internal dashboard to monitor network traffic, identify malicious cyber activity and comply with the Federal Information Security Management Act.
