(Herndon, VA and Raleigh, NC) In partnership with a prime contractor, Spear is supporting a multi-tiered effort with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Continuous Diagnostics Mitigation (CDM) program to fortify Federal Civilian networks and systems. The Spear team will be providing highly qualified cybersecurity professionals to expand continuous diagnostics capabilities, prioritize risks and identify and mitigate flaws faster. This will lower operational risk as well as exploitation of government IT systems.
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.
