Hear From the Authors: Federal Zero Trust Strategy and Maturity Model

This event qualifies for 1 CPEs

Among other Federal Government initiatives, the Executive Order 14028 of May 2021, “Improving the Nation’s Cybersecurity” triggered the creation of three documents, critical to helping agencies to adopt zero trust cybersecurity principles and adjust their network architectures accordingly.

The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has released a draft Federal Zero Trust Strategy, to adapt and accelerate civilian agencies’ enterprise security architecture to be based on Zero Trust principles. (accepting public comment through Sept 21, 2021)

To complement the Strategy, the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) developed a Zero Trust Maturity Model, designed to provide agencies with a roadmap and resources to achieve an optimal zero trust environment. (open for public comment through Oct 1, 2021)

As the Federal Government continues to transition to the cloud, Cloud Security Technical Reference Architecture (TRA) aims to guide agencies in their considerations for shared services, cloud migration, and cloud security posture management. This collaborative, multi-agency effort provides agencies with guidance on the shared risk model for cloud service adoption (authored by FedRAMP), how to build a cloud environment (authored by USDS), and how to monitor such an environment through robust cloud security posture management (authored by CISA).

Join ATARC’s webinar to hear from representatives of co-authoring agencies about the importance, creation process, challenges and other insights related to the above mentioned guidance documents.
