This strategy supports DoD’s overarching efforts toward Digital Modernization. In this workshop, we will review DoD's information technology strategic initiatives, cybersecurity reference architectures, relevant laws, regulations, policies, and standards related to ZT. Participants will exercise their knowledge, skills, and abilities (KSAs) on project management principles, system design analysis, and assessment and reporting methodologies. Participants will assess cybersecurity ZT trade-space and tradeoffs based on the People, Processes, and Technology relating to having adequate security controls, Doctrine, Organization, Training, materiel, Leadership and Education, Personnel, Facilities, and Policy (DOTmLPF-P) and risk management framework (RMF) principles.
