Zero Trust: The Moat is Drained

Zero Trust: The Moat is Drained

ZeroTrust has gained a lot of attention, and for good reason. Information security architectures have struggled to keep pace with the threat landscape and have not supplied organizations with a successful mechanism to protect itself from external and internal threats. This assertion is well supported by the reports of organizations across industry sectors being breached on a regular basis. These reports tell us that what we have been doing is not working and we need a fresh approach to the problem of information security. Zero trust provides a new way to approach and handle these threats through a holistic approach that does not innately trust any part of the data flow from the end user to where the data resides on its host information system. This session will address the challenges and lessons learned from attempting to plan, develop and deploy a zero-trust computing environment, and share about how agencies and industry can best work together to apply this methodology into specific mission environments.

Learning Objectives:

  • Demystifying the concepts around zero trust
  • Educating the attendees on the capabilities surrounding zero trust that will improve organizational security
  • What is the state of the industry around zero trust
  • Provide current project deliverables released this year
  • Discuss phase 2 project.
Speakers: 

Darren Death – Chief Information Security Officer, ASRC Federal

Brigadier General (ret) Gregory J. Touhill – President, Cyxtera Federal Group
