Zero Trust Cyber Exchange 2022 sessions on demand

Our exchange is a wrap, but the insights and tips on how to achieve zero trust live on.

Below you can watch sessions from Federal News Network’s inaugural Zero Trust Cyber Exchange on demand and read articles featuring cybersecurity leaders from across the government and industry.

Our team of editors delve into the status of government efforts to stand up zero trust architectures, how OMB and CISA plan further guidance, what it takes to move from network-centric to identity-centric access management, how agencies are tackling the cultural shift, the capabilities in new tools and more.

Day 1

“You can’t just be a CISO and implement something like this. It just impacts the organization too broadly.” — Chris DeRusha

“The place where you make decisions about who gets access to what … needs to be as close to the resource as possible.” — Steve Schmalz

Day 2

“The acceptance of the model has happened a lot quicker in the last two years than I would have expected.” — Kevin Bingham

“What excites me the most about zero trust is it’s really the most transformative strategy … shift we’ve had in cyber in the last several decades.” — Cameron Chehreh
