Young AFCEA Washington, DC is proud to host Tech Talk:
The Road to Zero Trust in the DoD

Zero Trust networking is a fundamental shift from the traditional security methods. This architecture allows a group to better track and manage adversaries, while also limiting breaches from human error. The Zero Trust Architecture is being widely adopted throughout the world, including the Department of Defense. This is important as the DoD’s digital battlefield continuously protects key data, securing our physical battlefield, and Nation as a whole.

Join us on December 5 for our last Tech Talk of 2019 as we bring together perspectives from government and industry to discuss the cyber concept that eliminates the notion of trust from an organization's network architecture.

This Tech Talk event offers an intimate and engaging environment for the brightest minds in industry and government to come together and discuss some of the transformational technologies and business challenges we are currently facing. This event provides a forum where you can openly learn about new technology and have the opportunity to speak one-on-one with senior leaders.
