The clock is ticking. Agency IT and security teams have until August 2024 to implement zero trust architectures (ZTAs), as directed by the Biden administration executive order on improving the nation’s cybersecurity. The goal? To increase their security rigor as the perimeters of federal networks have become increasingly dynamic, and to defend against persistent threat campaigns aimed at government systems, networks, users and data.
Over three afternoons, beginning June 21, Federal News Network will share expert insights and advice on implementing zero trust — as well as detail where agencies are in their move to zero trust and early lessons learned. Taking our cue from CISA’s Zero Trust Maturity Model, Day 1 will focus on people, Day 2 on devices and Day 3 on data and applications.
Federal CISO Chris DeRusha will kick off the event and talk with Federal News Network Executive Editor Jason Miller about the state of the government’s zero trust efforts and how the Office of Management and Budget is tracking progress against the administration’s executive order on improving cyber.
Here’s a look at a few of the other federal cybersecurity leaders participating:
Air Force: Raju Ranjan, Technical Lead for Air Force Zero Trust, and Capt. Christopher Kodama, Military Engineer, AFNet Sustainment and Operations Branch
