The Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation (CDM) program was established by Congress mandating the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to establish a program to advance the state of government’s cyber security infrastructure for unclassified networks. The program focuses on providing tools and services that automatically detect and report on flaws, vulnerabilities and the overall state of a network’s security stance. It creates a framework for continuous monitoring of cyber security risks and allows for those risks to be prioritized to enable the efficient deployment of the most critical mitigations first. It enables continuous improvement through an awareness approach to information security. This CDM architecture embraces NIST’s Cyber Security Framework by creating the infrastructure and process to actively manage and continuously improve department and agency information systems infrastructure.
