EDA's overreaction to cyber attack highlights every agency's challenge

The Commerce Department's Economic Development Administration spent almost $3 million to remediate a cyber attack that really didn't happen. Commerce's inspector general found the attack infected only two outgoing email servers and not more than half of EDA's systems. Two cybersecurity experts say other agencies can learn from EDA's year-long unnecessary and expensive recovery.

The Reality of Continuous Monitoring…Is Your Agency Secure?

Is your agency coping with identifying and protecting against the constant barrage of sophisticated cyber threats, while at the same time, trying to improve your FISMA scores? From reduced resources (budget, manpower and unified vision), to lack of an automated risk mitigation capabilities, these factors continue to impact civilian agency FISMA scores. WTOP brings together a panel of network security experts to explore the challenges civilian agencies face in dealing with critical cyber security concerns, and discuss how to coordinate defenses, leverage advanced tools and take advantage of CDM programs to help agencies tackle these issues. The White House has emphasized the need for continuous monitoring since 2010, and as part of the FY13 Homeland Security Appropriations Bill, DHS is to assist other federal agencies in enhancing their cybersecurity efforts. The CDM initiative gives participating agencies the means to implement continuous monitoring as a service (CMaaS), which is a bundled solution comprised of systems, sensors, risk- status displays and professional consulting services.
