The Department of Homeland Security Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency is seeking network, data and access management capabilities to support its new approach to continuous diagnostics and mitigation, Government CIO Media reported Thursday.
Kevin Cox, CDM program manager at CISA, noted during the 2019 RSA Federal Summit in Washington, D.C., said the agency wants to provide the necessary capabilities for protectingÂ systems and data as technological threats continue to evolve. Officials want to ensure that agency systems are integrated with diagnostic tools and sensors to have standardized and searchable data.
CISA is planning to award a contract in May for the development of a âfederal dashboardâ focused on CDM integration. The agency is also considering partnerships with industry on mobile data protection efforts.
âItâs not just security value. Itâs operational value. Itâs awareness value. We really want to expand what the agencies will be able to do there,â Cox said.
