Overview

ECS delivers the Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation (CDM) Dashboard, which provides real-time situational and threat awareness for all federal civilian agencies. The CDM Dashboard is a cyber data platform and analytics ecosystem that leverages Elastic technology to not only strengthen the cybersecurity posture of individual agencies, but also facilitate information sharing across the federal civilian government and aggregate government-wide risk exposure at the federal level for CISA.

We use Elastic technology to ingest, analyze, and visualize cyber data, facilitating operational visibility and collaboration across the federal civilian government. The CDM Dashboard captures data from individual devices all the way up to the organizational level, empowering cyber analysts with a clear, detailed view into their cyber posture, risk exposure, and threat landscape.

  • A strong culture of collaboration between partners and stakeholders—including CISA, other agencies, and integrators and engineers from the private sector—facilitates faster, more comprehensive adoption of the CDM Dashboard
  • Single-pane visibility provides real-time situational and threat awareness, while aggregating government-wide risk exposure at the federal level
  • Visibility into individual devices—including vulnerability, software, and configuration status—offers a comprehensive understanding of the security state of all assets and systems
  • The CDM Dashboard’s broadscale approach delivers advanced cybersecurity capabilities to all civilian agencies, not just those that have prioritized cybersecurity awareness in the past
  • A common schema and advanced cyber analytics capabilities enable CISA and agency-level analysts to quickly understand, prioritize, and mitigate emerging security threats at scale
  • Artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML) applications move beyond risk analysis to risk prediction, providing CISA and civilian agencies with a greater degree of cybersecurity protection

Conclusion

By leaning into a culture of collaboration between stakeholders across government and industry, ECS has enabled CISA to implement the CDM Dashboard in every agency across the federal civilian government. A cyber analytics ecosystem powered by Elastic technology, the CDM Dashboard greatly improves the cybersecurity posture of individual agencies, while summarizing government-wide risk exposure at the federal level for CISA, facilitating information sharing between agencies, and raising the cyber readiness level of the entire federal civilian government.

The CDM Dashboard Ecosystem contract is delivered on the GSA Alliant 2 Governmentwide Acquisition Contract (GWAC).
