Kevin Cox: DHS Seeks to Align Gov’t Mobile Mgmt Systems via CDM Program

The Department of Homeland Security‘s Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation program team looks to implement mobile device monitoring approaches in an effort to help federal agencies identify and address security incidents, GCN reported Thursday.

CDM Program Manager Kevin Cox told audience at an Advanced Technology Academic Research Center summit held Thursday that DHS wants to align and transfer agencies’ mobile management systems into a data repository.

“We want to report on the information, get it summarized at the federal level and help agencies understand their gaps in the mobile space,” Cox added, according to the report.

Fairfax, Va-based information technology contractor CGI Federal will support governmentwide mobile cybersecurity efforts as part of a $530M contract the department awarded in July under CDM’s Dynamic and Evolving Federal Enterprise Network Defense-Group C.
