Job Type: 1-2 Full-time
Whether to provide important information, enable access to essential government services, or store sensitive information, information and communications technology is increasingly essential to fundamental government activities. While heightened connectivity has transformed and improved access to government, it has also increased the extent and complexity of our shared cybersecurity risk. Cyber attacks on federal government networks are growing more sophisticated, frequent, and dynamic. It is paramount that the government protects networks, systems, and information from unauthorized access or disruption while continually providing essential services to the public and protecting privacy, civil rights, and civil liberties.
The Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation (CDM) program is a dynamic approach to fortifying the cybersecurity of government networks and systems. CDM provides federal departments and agencies with capabilities and tools that identify cybersecurity risks on an ongoing basis, prioritize these risks based upon potential impacts, and enable cybersecurity personnel to mitigate the most significant problems first. Congress established the CDM program to provide adequate, risk-based, and cost-effective cybersecurity and more efficiently allocate cybersecurity resources.
