The U.S. Government has embarked on an endeavor to improve cyber security, including critical infrastructure, by migrating to zero trust architecture with the deadline for executive departments and agencies to meet specific standards and objectives by the end of FY 2024.

OMB Memo M-22-09 states, “The foundational tenet of the Zero Trust Model is that no actor, system, network, or service operating outside or within the security perimeter is trusted. Instead, we must verify anything and everything attempting to establish access. It is a dramatic paradigm shift in philosophy of how we secure our infrastructure, networks, and data, from verify once at the perimeter to continual verification of each user, device, application, and transaction.”

Discussion will include the following topics:

1. What is zero trust and how does it apply to data security?

2. Why focus on zero trust? How is it different and why will it make a difference?

3. How important is the government mandate?

4. Do digital transformations and transitions to “cloud” make data vulnerable or more secure?

5. Best practices for implementing the White House Executive Order on Improving the Nation's Cybersecurity Infrastructure

6. What might the focus on zero trust miss?

Join senior cyber leaders to hear discussion about the move toward zero trust architecture in government, industry, and academia.
