Dividing By Zero: How Advanced Concepts Enhance Zero Trust
Thursday, December 9, 2021 | 2:00PM EST | 1 Hour | 1 CPE
The concept of zero trust is the core of the Cybersecurity Executive Order released in May. While its directives and deadlines apply to all federal agencies, it offers a useful model for state, local, territorial and tribal governments and educational systems whose cybersecurity needs are just as great.
It is easy to say, “Never trust – always verify.” It is much harder to put into practice. The National Security Agency released some guidance in February about zero trust as a security model, a set of system design principles, and a coordinated cybersecurity and system management strategy. Before that, Security Magazine published “Five practical steps to implement a zero-trust network.” Both of them suggest segmenting data and controlling network traffic flow, among other measures. An emerging concept that addresses these two, in particular, is microsegmentation – identifying smaller networks within the whole to which zero trust is applied, and building out from there.
- Define the elements and/or behaviors that signify microsegments for which implementing zero trust is essential.
- Identify easy ways that SLED agencies can begin to implement elements of zero trust, like multi-factor authentication, as they continue to plan out a full implementation.
- Assess organizational priorities for protection of the most important data, assets, and systems.
- Delineate ways to implement zero trust in stages that suit organizational resources and priorities.
- Understand how advanced zero trust concepts like microsegmentation can push this already powerful security footing even further.
