Trust Nothing: Implementing Zero Trust

Salons N - P

The castle and moat perimeter approach no longer works in today’s zero-trust world, where agencies must enforce new – and better – security protocols on data and users, regardless of where they are and the device they’re using. This session will explore the shift to zero-trust and the role it plays in reducing the attack surface, streamlining operations, and improving security in modern cloud-based environments where the traditional perimeter has dissolved. We’ll also discuss:

  • How agencies can use stringent authentication and identify verification to place protections around data, high-value assets, and the user
  • Lessons learned from new TIC 3.0 pilot programs and the challenges of direct-to-net connectivity
  • The role of emerging tools including endpoint detection response and software-defined perimeter
