Federal agencies have been ordered to move toward zero trust architectures with alacrity, through Executive Order 14028 on improving cybersecurity and the Office of Management and Budget’s two memoranda, M-22-09 on meeting zero trust cybersecurity principles, and M-21-31 on improving investigative and remediation capabilities following cyber breaches.


The Department of Homeland Security observed in its Zero Trust Implementation Strategy that agencies “can expect audits and budgets to hinge on questions of whether and how [they’ve] implemented zero trust for years to come.”


In the DHS strategy, leveraging current tools in a creative way can help meet zero trust implementation goals and fundamentally reduce risk. This requires understanding what tools are already available, their features and functionalities, how widely deployed they are, and how different tools can be integrated to achieve priorities such as adopting identity-driven access, incorporating the principle of least privilege, and reducing an agency’s threat surface.


Learning Objectives:

  • Review the goals and objectives a zero trust architecture aims to achieve, such as both streamlining and strengthening cybersecurity protections
  • Identify specific tools being used at your agency and how they can help reach milestones on the zero trust journey
  • Delineate challenges and obstacles agencies may have in common (e.g., legacy technology and architecture, budget constraints) and ways to address them
