DHS CDM Program

Defending Federal Networks and Systems


With the increased network connectivity between agencies, the risk of attack is even higher from injected viruses, disrupted operations and stolen information. The Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation (CDM) program provides access to continuous monitoring sensors, diagnosis, mitigation tools, dashboards, and continuous monitoring as a service (CMaaS) to help strengthen networks security posture for federal agencies as well as state and local governments.


Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation Program Overview


Protecting government networks is more paramount than ever. Government networks and systems contain sensitive data on everything from healthcare information to classified documentation. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has initiated the Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation program to safeguard and secure Federal Information Technology networks from cybersecurity threats. The aim of the program is to protect cyberspace environments from cyberattacks that are constantly growing and evolving.
