Weekly Summary (9/13/2021): TCISA’s now public draft for their version of a Zero Trust Maturity Model aims to help agencies develop their Zero Trust strategies and implementation plans. Its major tenet is to “prevent unauthorized access to data and services coupled with making the access control enforcement as granular as possible.” In non-government terms, Zero Trust shifts from a location/network-centric model to a more data-centric approach for fine-grained security. This makes a lot of sense and is the prescribed model that the DoD has been reviewing for a long time. But while securing the cloud can be difficult, especially in the behemoth that is the government cloud system, it’s a very solvable problem. The industry has the tools, and we know how to do this correctly. And the cloud is the “final frontier” of where we can fully implement a greenfield ZT infrastructure, but we must be strategic and programmatic to get it right. It is fair to say that moving to Zero Trust is non-trivial. CISA states, “it requires a change in an organization’s philosophy and culture around cybersecurity. The path to Zero trust is a journey that will take years to implement.” I couldn’t agree more.
