Who Should Attend: Government, Military, and Industry at all levels who want to learn about the principles of Zero Trust and its role in innovative cybersecurity solutions.
Speaker: Mr. Will Schmitt
Description: Zero Trust (ZT) potentially transforms DoD Cybersecurity. ZT is a cybersecurity strategy wherein security policy is applied based on context established through least-privileged access controls and strict user authentication—not assumed trust. Zero Trust Security Control Overlay will provide standardized expectations on how to implement ZT across the Department and associate security controls with zero trust activities and outcomes.
Come join us as we explore how to mitigate cybersecurity risks through consistent selection and implementation of security controls across the DoD enterprise.SpeakersImage
