A Guided Approach Towards a Zero-Trust Architecture

When:  Mar 16, 2022 from 12:00:00 PM to 01:00:00 PM (ET)

The CSA-DC Chapter Research Committee is dedicated to solving critical problems facing the Government and highly regulated business sectors important to our membership. As organizations contend with complying with a federal mandate, developing modernization journeys to the cloud and implementing resiliency from new attack vectors, the lead authors of this paper from the CSA-DC Chapter published a guided approach on how organizations can navigate a highly complex environment to develop a Zero Trust (ZT) strategy.

Zero Trust Architecture (ZTA) has been a goal for enterprise IT for a decade.  Even with broad support from the IT vendor community, the reality of ZTA is still ambition rather than reality for large enterprises.  Modern micro-services and hybrid cloud based architectures compound the challenge by increasing system complexity and adding operational costs for synchronization and orchestration of cybersecurity policy.   This paper explores the options enterprises have to deliver a ZTA for granular access control spanning multiple clouds, on-premises environments, and end-point level security.

In a Panel format, We will discuss today few highlights on the topic of the Publication as well as the collaboration of the publication through our chapter and how you can be part of any future research projects.
