Continuous Monitoring As a Service: A Shift in the Way Government Does Business
Though continuous monitoring has been “required” of agencies for several years, many lacked the inventory knowledge of their own systems to be able to implement continuous monitoring effectively. Numerous smaller agencies were unable to independently track their weaknesses, creating pockets of vulnerability across the federal government’s barriers. As the number of external threats continues to increase, these holes have become a pressing concern for federal agencies.
To close the gaps, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is taking steps to offer continuous monitoring as a service (CMaaS) to all civilian agencies, thereby giving agencies the support services they need to comply with previous mandates. Read this GBC brief to learn:
- How agencies are planning to budget for a new cybersecurity strategy
- How Continuous Monitoring as a Service (CMaaS) makes continuous monitoring accessible to even the smallest of agencies
- Why continuous communication is an important component of a comprehensive cybersecurity strategy
