This course is designed for managers, staff and other stakeholders who may be involved in implementation and/or decision making regarding Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation (CDM). The course aims to help the student better understand how people and devices work together to protect mission critical assets and to more effectively evaluate their cyber posture. The course begins by defining HWAM and why it is critical to the implementation of a robust cyber-security program. The training highlights the criteria for monitoring and managing hardware assets using CDM. It then transitions into HWAM implementation criteria and discusses the generic CDM concept of operations specific to HWAM. Topics covered include Actual State, Desired State, and Defects.
