Cyber Chat – Zero Trust: The Boost That Legacy Modernization Needs?

Two years following the May 2021 cybersecurity executive order (EO), many Federal agencies have made significant progress in implementing zero trust architectures, despite challenges including skills gaps, lack of technology interoperability, and the limitations of legacy technology. The new National Cybersecurity Strategy amplifies the commitment to zero trust with a commitment to accelerate agency IT modernization and sunset systems that are incapable of zero trust implementation within a decade. This panel will evaluate whether – and how – the move to zero trust could be the impetus to finally replace antiquated – but critical – agency systems.
