The Energy Department has developed a new dashboard tool it plans to use to protect its networks and systems against cybersecurity incidents, DOE’s chief architect has told Federal News Radio.
Rick Lauderdale spoke to the radio station to discuss the new technology, which is owned by the government and based on a commercial dashboard.
“We have a couple of applications we use at Energy and we tied the information together like lifecycle management for software and hardware into an easy readable dashboard,” Lauderdale said to reporter Jason Miller.
“This is real information based on IT asset inventory that they have,” Lauderdale said.
Miller reports the dashboard works to use a color scheme similar to that of traffic lights that informs DOE program and business officials on the states of hardware and software.
