But in addition to changing the ways we work, protecting and managing these more distributed networks will require new architectures.

Enter TIC 3.0, the latest iteration of the Trusted Internet Connection framework, which aims to improve how users can tap cloud, leverage emerging technology, such as SD-WAN, and secure federal networks. But why should agencies adopt these recommendations and how can they get started?

That's what three experts will talk about in this episode of "The Roadmap to TIC 3.0," a three-part podcast series brought to you by Cisco and World Wide Technology, in partnership with Government Executive Media Group's Studio 2G.

In this episode, Constance Sayers, president of Government Executive Media Group, will speak with Chad Mitchell, technical solutions architect for U.S. Public Sector at Cisco and Ryan Friel, senior consulting solutions architect for the Public Sector Cloud Practice at WWT to talk through the basics of TIC 3.0, its connection with zero trust and cloud, as well as why agencies should begin to align architectures with this framework in order to strengthen cyber defenses.
