This is the March 20, 2018 joint hearing on "CDM: Government Perspectives on Security and Modernization," held before the Subcommittee on Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Protection of the Committee on Homeland Security House of Representatives and the Subcommittee on Information Technology of the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. From the opening statement of John Ratcliffe: "This is the second hearing this year that the Subcommittee on Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Protection has held on the Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation, or CDM, Program. That is because I see real value in the goals of CDM, not only for cybersecurity but also for improving the efficiency of the information technology across the board. To that end, I am pleased to be holding this hearing today jointly with my good friend from Texas, Congressman Will Hurd, who will be joining us shortly and who has been a leader on IT modernization issues as the Chairman of the Subcommittee on Information Technology. I welcome our friends from the Oversight Committee to the CDM conversation today. I believe that DHS's CDM Program has great potential to drive progress on a number of cybersecurity issues, from network visibility to data-centric security and from the role of increased automation of security tasks to the role of artificial intelligence. So the question that I have for this panel today is what can Congress do to make sure CDM capabilities are being rolled out to keep pace with the evolving threat landscape?" Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Max Everett, Scott Blackburn, David Garcia, and Kevin Cox.
