Leveraging Information Security Continuous Monitoring to Enhance Cybersecurity
Cyber attacks against U.S. Federal information systems are relentless and increasingly sophisticated. The probability for grave damage continues to escalate despite the efforts and significant resources expended to protect this critical infrastructure. The detection, analysis, and prioritization of cybersecurity vulnerabilities, threats, and the status of the effectiveness of cybersecurity protection measures is needed within minutes versus monthly, quarterly, or annually to reduce or eliminate compromise and the associated debilitating consequences. Information Security Continuous Monitoring (ISCM) leverages technology to evolve from compliance-focused cybersecurity to data-driven risk management. ISCM enables real-time or near-real-time cyber situational awareness to be responsive to the explosive rates of vulnerabilities, persistent threats, and determined enemies. Despite the promises of ISCM, Federal agencies continue to face challenges in achieving effective ISCM capabilities. Our research seeks to assess why we need to consider ISCM for cybersecurity and the elements of ISCM that need to be improved. The recently published National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) ISCM Assessment (ISCMA) methodology and companion assessment tool ISCMAx will be used to structure the research. This research will inform measures needed to optimize ISCM.
