After decades of delay, cybersecurity has become a defining issue for the United States. In response, when the White House laid out its zero trust requirements in January 2022, it set an ambitious goal – that all agencies have their zero trust infrastructure in place before October 1, 2024. This is because of the reality of the digital age: a persistent threat environment is the norm in the IT world, and agencies have to assume they’ve been breached.


The National Institute of Standards and Technology’s SP 800-207 provides guidance for a zero trust architecture, where “zero trust focuses on protecting resources…, not network segments, as the network location is no longer seen as the prime component to the security posture of the asset.” In other words, the core of zero trust is that every person, every location, and every device that accesses federal networks must have a secure, verified identity.


Join us as thought leaders from agencies and industry outline their progress toward reaching a zero trust environment and the challenges they have addressed along the way.


We’ll Discuss:

  • Identify the elements that comprise “identity” for all the assets in a system, including the human component
  • Define the tools and configurations that provide secure, verified identities
  • Delineate the metrics to use to gauge progress toward meeting the zero trust implementation deadline
