SBA: Urgent Need Leads to Long-Term Improvements   [open pdf - 153KB]

This document describes a successful example from the U.S Department of Homeland Security Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA)'s Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation (CDM) Program. From the Document: "As the entire nation grappled with the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, the Small Business Administration (SBA) faced a seemingly ominous challenge. Just when most Americans were forced to work from home--and when office systems and structures were upended as a result--SBA had to quickly implement a major and critical funding program for its small business community to help keep them afloat. The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) was signed into law March 27, 2020, to respond to the economic fallout of the COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] pandemic in the United States. The CARES Act provided direct assistance to American workers and small businesses and authorized SBA to provide funding through the Paycheck Protection Program, Economic Injury Disaster Loans, and other debt/loan programs."
