DHS cyber tool finds huge amount of ‘shadow IT’ in U.S. agencies

“Some departments and agencies had ‘several hundred percent’ more devices on their networks than they expected and the average across government was about 44 percent more, Department of Homeland Security official Kevin Cox said last week at the McAfee Security Through Innovation Summit, hosted by CyberScoop.

‘There was something of a ‘oh shit’ moment,’ said a person familiar with the discovery, made during the recent rollout of phase one of Continuous Diagnostics and Monitoring tools. CDM is a DHS-funded, government-wide acquisition program that buys and installs cybersecurity tools on U.S. departmental and agency networks.”
