Kevin Cox, a Department of Homeland Security official, said his team is fielding a cloud-based shared services dashboard as part of the Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation program to help agencies operationalize their data through visualization, business intelligence and analytics, Federal News Network reported Thursday.

“In addition to all of that work, we’ve expanded out into our network security management arena,” Cox, CDM program manager at DHS, said on the network’s Federal Monthly Insights – CDM Month. “We are working with agencies to get a better understanding of what their perimeters look like, what data they already have out in the cloud.”

The department’s CDM uses the dashboard to deliver access and identity management and asset management capabilities to 34 non-CFO Act agencies.

Cox also offered updates on his team’s efforts when it comes to mobile asset data. “We’re about to begin an effort to work with agencies to pull in their mobile asset data from their enterprise mobility management systems. So we’re venturing in on the mobile side,” he noted.
