The AWS Public Sector Summit at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, DC, June 11-12, is a chance to get inspired, dive deep and begin to build. 

CGI is a bronze level sponsor exhibiting at booth 819 and CGI Federal's Evan Uhl will be co-presenting with Darren House from AWS on "Security and Identity: The Continuous Mitigation & Diagnostic Journey on AWS". The presentation will be on Tuesday June 11 at 9:00 AM- 9:50 AM in Ballroom Stage C.

Strengthening the security of federal networks, systems, and data is one of the most important challenges we face as a nation. The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has issued guidance that all federal agencies must establish information exchanges between their dashboards and the central federal dashboard. To assist in this requirement, we explore how agencies can implement a continuous diagnostics and mitigation (CDM) program using AWS. Topics include AWS services that map to CDM requirements; how to enforce compliance with standards; ways to provide visibility into current and actual states; how to centralize service data to build a dashboard; and how to create a chief information officer FISMA dashboard using AWS native services.

CGI's Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation (CDM) program was created to provide a baseline for risk-based cost effective cybersecurity that more efficiently allocates cybersecurity resources for all civilian federal agencies. The program's overall mission is to defend the federal government’s IT networks from cybersecurity threats. We accomplish this by providing sensors, diagnostics, mitigation tools and associated continuous monitoring services for federal agencies across the spectrum.
