Public Sector Tech Talk E05: Adopting Zero Trust in Support of the Cyber Executive Order
The Biden Administration's Cyber Executive Order (EO), officially released on May 12, lays out a multi-pronged approach on how to fortify federal agency cybersecurity efforts and mitigate the large-scale, damaging attacks felt across the country. The Cyber EO provides direction, now it's up to each agency to develop a cohesive strategy. Zero Trust is a concept highlighted in the EO and one that will need to be part of any agency strategy, but is there a consensus on what this means or how to achieve it? In this Public Sector Tech Talk, WWT and F5 will discuss how federal agencies need to move away from traditional network perimeter defense tactics to a perimeter-less data environment that uses identity and authentication tools as the primary means of access in a centralized, controlled Zero Trust framework.
