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 VULN identifies the existence of vulnerable software products in the boundary to allow an organization to mitigate and thwart common attacks that exploit those vulnerabilities.
The course begins by defining VULN, how it applies to the target environment, and how a fully implemented VULN capability impacts a Department or Agency. It then transitions into VULN criteria and methods, where it reviews Actual State, Desired State, and Defect Checks specific to the capability area. It explains how VULN builds upon the other capabilities areas, the types of defects, and how those defect checks differ at the local and federal levels.
