CDM: More Critical Than Ever

SolarWinds changes everything … including CDM. MeriTalk’s latest installment of the Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation (CDM) research series, “CDM: More Critical Than Ever,” explores how the CDM program can help agencies build resilience after a series of high-profile cyberattacks involving SolarWinds Orion and Microsoft. The report also examines how zero trust can support CDM’s future, budget outlooks, a changing presidential cyber agenda, and the steps agencies are taking to increase visibility in their IT environments.

In advance of MeriTalk’s “CDM Central: The Age of Cyber Defenders” virtual conference on May 12, 2021, we surveyed 100 Federal and industry CDM stakeholders to evaluate priorities and pain points, and offer best practices for recovery.

Download the report to discover:

  • What agencies say is next for Federal cybersecurity after the SolarWinds breach
  • How the program’s current funding levels play a role
  • How the CDM framework can help prevent future attacks like SolarWinds
