Title: Continuous Diagnostics Mitigation CDM

The General Services Administration's (GSA) recently unveiled Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation (CDM) Tools Special Item Number (SIN) 132-44 under IT Schedule 70 is no short of a game changer in the realm of federal government cybersecurity. Here at Blackfyre, your trusted GSA Federal Schedule Consulting firm, we break down what this new SIN means for you and the potential opportunities it offers in the government sector.

Overview of the CDM Tools SIN 132-44

Featuring an all-inclusive array of hardware, software, and services, the CDM Tools SIN 132-44 aims to bolster network security and cyberspace. The comprehensive coverage provides tools for continuous diagnostics and mitigation, with associated maintenance, training, and related activities.

The Dynamic Five Subcategories of CDM Capabilities

  • Manage What is on the network: Hardware, software, configurations, and known security vulnerabilities
  • Manage Who is on the network: User and system access authorization and permissions, including granted resource rights
  • Manage How is the network protected: Actions and behavior at network borders and within computing infrastructure
  • Manage What is happening on the network: Preparation for events/incidents, data collection, and incident detection through data analysis
  • Emerging Tools and Technology: Includes cybersecurity tools and technology outside other subcategories.

Getting Listed on the DHS Approved Products List (APL) & CDM SIN

To qualify for a place in the CDM SIN 132-44, a product needs to be reviewed and approved by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) before getting added to the CDM Approved Products List (APL). The process entails a thorough review and technical check by DHS to ascertain the product's conformity to relevant capability requirements.

Steps to Take:

  1. APL Package Submission: Submit a comprehensive APL package, including an APL Submission Form and detailed documentation for each Product Family you wish to add. The information provided should give a cohesive profile of the offeror and product.
  2. Technical Evaluation and Approval: DHS will conduct an initial review followed by a technical evaluation. If your product qualifies, you will receive an approval and be added to the APL. This will then be conveyed to the GSA for the next stages.
  3. The submission window for CDM APL is the first week of each month. DHS aims to update the APL by the month-end.
