Continuous Monitoring: Tools and Techniques for Trustworthy Government IT

How are agencies tackling the threats and vulnerabilities inherent in today's technology dependent government?

Continuous monitoring provides nearly real-time information in the face of cyber attacks and is essential for senior leaders making ongoing risk-based decisions that affect critical mission and business functions. OMB mandates and NIST guidelines require agencies to establish oversight mechanisms to evaluate systematically and ensure the continuing security, interoperability, and availability of systems and agency data. Tune into this interactive discussion to learn about the current state of risk management and how agencies are using continuous monitoring to maintain situational awareness of information security and organizational risk.

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.
