The federal government is well ahead of state and local governments in the implementation of a zero trust architecture because of the White House Executive Order on Cybersecurity last year. But state and local agencies see it in their immediate future - 67 percent of state CIOs who responded to the 2021 Annual State CIO Survey anticipate that introducing or expanding a zero-trust framework will receive more attention in the next two to three years.


At the National Association of State Chief Information Officers midyear conference in May, cybersecurity and collaboration with local governments were top-of-mind, especially with regard to identity management. Zero trust initiatives, or planning for them, are under way in many state and local IT agencies.


Join us as state and local leaders and the business community discuss the capabilities these agencies already have available, how they can be used to build the foundation for a zero trust architecture, and the range of tools and services they may need along the way.
