The story of the Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation (CDM) program is far from finished, and its importance in ensuring the security of Federal networks has only increased during the last three months as maximum telework has become the norm. As the CDM program assumes an even higher priority for agencies, how can Federal officials and industry stakeholders stay connected and focus on the program’s coming chapters?

Join MeriTalk from the comfort of your home for the virtual CDM Central conference, streaming live from 8:30 a.m. – 12:15 p.m. This half-day virtual conference will feature insights into the evolving CDM program from government and industry experts, including an OMB Spotlight from Federal CISO Grant Schneider, and CISA keynotes from Kevin Cox, CDM Program Manager, and Matt Hartman, Associate Director, Cybersecurity Division.
