DHS to Provide Minimum Viable Products for Agency Dashboards

DHS to Provide Minimum Viable Products for Agency Dashboards

The Department of Homeland Security plans to deploy the minimum viable products for agency dashboards, which have been deployed to 59 agencies.

Judy Baltensperger, project manager for the dashboard of DHS’ Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation program, told Fifth Domain that the agency plans to integrate a number of capabilities, such as risk-scoring, assessment metrics, system health monitoring and threat intelligence feed integration, along with the necessary upgrades, into the dashboards through February 2021. Baltensperger explained that the CDM has set up its “core fundamental capabilities” to help agencies understand who is accessing the network and the devices on it, Fifth Domain reported.

The dashboards are expected to be enhanced to provide better data that facilitate improved decision-making and situational awareness, Baltensperger said.

In addition to creating a “common lexicon” around master device records and master user records, CDM wants to provide a data exploration tool to cybersecurity professionals at agencies.
