CISA ready to rock CDM program in the world of OT

1 min read

The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) has announced plans to extend its Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation (CDM) program to include operational technology (OT). The CDM program aims to provide federal agencies with the tools and capabilities necessary to identify and mitigate cybersecurity risks. Traditional IT endpoints already form part of the program, but extending it to include OT will allow for non-traditional or operational technology to be monitored and secured. This move is part of a broader government effort to better manage and secure non-traditional systems such as industrial control systems, building management systems, and other connected devices. The CDM program plans to focus on improving asset management, automating FISMA metrics reporting, and rolling out endpoint detection and response capabilities.
