Abstract : The federal government faces a monumental task of protecting national security information, advanced warfighting capabilities and the personal information entrusted by hundreds of millions of American citizens. Each federal agency has now identified High Value Assets (HVA) as defined by information sets that our adversaries most typically target. The Continuous Diagnostic and Mitigation (CDM) initiative aims to establish a unified security posture across the federal space with a specific focus on HVAs. This work examines federal cybersecurity initiatives and proposes how data reputation and telemetry can enhance the federal security posture, increase the costs of computer network attack (CNA) of our adversaries, and improve the ability of defenders to drive down the time between when malicious code is observed and when protections are put in place.
