The SolarWinds breach sent shockwaves through the Federal government, and the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation (CDM) program was front and center.

CDM stakeholders, according to MeriTalk’s recent research, say the SolarWinds hack boosted CDM’s importance. But, cyber pros also assert that it’s time for a post-SolarWinds makeover. There’s strong consensus for change, with a focus on prioritizing network security management, identity and access management, and data quality and protection. And, stakeholders say it’s time to zero-in on zero trust.

Where does the CDM program go from here? Watch the “CDM: More Critical Than Ever,” a complimentary webinar on-demand, where we discussed MeriTalk’s research study findings and what they mean for Federal IT. Hear government and industry leaders discuss:

  • Why 93 percent of CDM stakeholders say SolarWinds is a catalyst for rethinking CDM
  • How the program can evolve to promote stronger security and better resiliency
  • The importance of zero-trust architecture
  • How CDM might rethink priorities, revisit resources, and double down on integration with other cyber efforts
