Zero Trust Implementation: A How-To Guide

This event qualifies for 1 CPEs

With all of the components of Zero Trust, there are various models and theories that an organization can use to strengthen their cybersecurity practices. The CISA Zero Trust Maturity Model and the DoD Zero Trust Strategy are only two examples of frameworks that provide guidance on implementing Zero Trust security principles within an organization. Both models emphasize the steps it takes to achieve total Zero Trust, but they differ in some of their strategies. Understanding the features of these frameworks, and other models, will help organizations develop effective strategies for implementing ZT. 


Tune in to hear from cybersecurity experts from across the Federal government discuss what models and theories they follow, as well as how these two foundational ZT models impact their security practices.
