ABSTRACT: Broad scale adoption of a sound, standardized cyber risk management process - such as the NIST Cyber Security Framework (CSF) and/or DoD Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) - can improve the cybersecurity and resilience of the Nation’s critical infrastructure and industrial supply chains.  The DHS-developed Cyber Secure Dashboard (“Dashboard”) is a comprehensive online management platform that empowers organizations to efficiently manage the full range of activities needed to improve cybersecurity postures and organizational cybersecurity maturity through conformance to NIST and DoD standards.   The Dashboard is a full featured management application developed through DHS to accelerate initial assessment, clarify and prioritize requirements, develop cybersecurity policies, manage cybersecurity implementation tasks, centralize compliance artifacts, and integrate knowledge from your entire security operation into a single, easy to navigate tool.  

This webinar will present the background and design objectives of the Dashboard and the targeted benefits to organizations and supply chains.  An online, live demonstration of the platform will give attendees an opportunity to assess the functionality and usability of the tool for addressing NIST and DoD standards.
