Limited Attendance: Government Only
As agencies venture into the new frontier—cloud filled skies, open landscapes, and perimeter free endpoints—traditional security models no longer work. Agencies are exploring Zero Trust, a security framework based on identity as the foundation. The goal: reduce cyber risk regardless of location, device, and network.
