AFCEA DC October Virtual Event
The Road to Zero Trust
The Department of Defense (DoD) operates one of the world’s largest and most complex set of networks. An ever-increasing number of users and endpoint devices connect to these defense networks, multiplying points of entry and attack. As a result, the DoD is reassessing the current method of perimeter security, considering new methods such as “zero trust.” Rooted in the principle of “never trust, always verify,” a zero trust architecture (ZTA) can significantly offset vulnerabilities and threats across DoD networks by creating discrete, granular access rules for specific applications and services within a network, according to the Defense Innovation Board (DIB). Meanwhile, The Defense Information Systems (DISA) and the National Security Agency (NSA) are teaming up to deliver the defense community's first zero-trust reference architecture guidance later this year.
Please join AFCEA DC for a virtual event on Oct. 8, 2020 to hear DoD experts discuss how to implement Zero Trust in agencies.
