DHS launching a CDO office and CMMC-like risk management program!

Acting CDO Carlene Lleto is working on eight priority domains that include immigration, law enforcement and cybersecurity. The need for CDO offices was revealed during the COVID-19 pandemic. DHS launched a department wide COVID 19 vaccination campaign in partnership with Department of Veterans Affairs health center. The problem arose when DHS needed to get in contact with workers and it required “extensive time and effort to collecting and reconciling many different datasets from across the department”.

 Along with the new office spaces, DHS is enforcing cyber security through a zero-trust action group. DHS is set to integrate security into all parts of the IT organization, network architecture and software development. The zero-trust action group is expanding reusable security architectures, policy guides, pattern libraries and reference implementations with a two-year plan.
