Continuing Diagnostics and Mitigation: Discussion of Progress and Next Steps

The Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation (CDM) program was created to provide agencies visibility into their networks to identify any cyber flaws and remediate them in a swift and streamlined approach. Though many agencies have already implemented a number of security tools, they still may lack a method for aggregating and analyzing the collective data for a holistic picture of their security posture. The CDM initiative is aimed at getting all civilian agencies the proper tools to improve vulnerability management, manage hardware and software assets, and ensure the proper security configurations are in place.

Carrying On with Continuity of Operations

More than 80 percent of the federal systems count on private sector critical infrastructure to work.

Should one of the telecommunications, electricity or other providers be hacked or go down from a natural disaster, agency mission would be in peril.

Just take last summer's Derecho that impacted the Washington DC area. One agency lost their connection to the Internet for some time because of the storm even though their infrastructure was in the cloud.

Over the past decade or more, agencies have applied the lessons learned from the assortment of man-made and natural disasters that have impacted their services to keep their services running as smoothly as possible.

But with the emergence of cloud computing, virtualization, mobile computing and other technologies, what should agencies keep in mind to ensure the continuity of operations? How is the idea of COOP and disaster recovery changing? The panel, Carrying on with Continuity of Operations, will look at how agencies have implemented COOP and disaster recovery over the past decade and where they need to go next.

Protecting and Securing your Data in a Virtual World

Data center consolidation and optimization, the wide spread adoption of virtualization, and reduced budgets are driving tremendous changes in the federal IT landscape. In the face of all this change, one thing remains constant: the need to protect and restore your agency's data— at a moment's notice—whether it resides on a physical or virtual server.
