Dr. Chase Cunningham, a leading cybersecurity expert and originator of Forrester’s ZTX Zero Trust Extended Framework, shares the latest cybersecurity and Zero Trust news that executives need to know.
Weekly Summary (7/26/2021):The biggest news in a long time around Zero Trust came out this last week when the National Cyber Center of Excellence (NCCOE) notified the community that a group of vendors had been selected for participation in a Zero Trust program. The outcome of this program will certainly have a significant influence on the vendor and buyer community and is the first follow-on step to the Executive Order that was issued for ZT. I think what we really should note here is that formal steps are being taken which provide evidence of the Federal Government’s commitment to a long-term ZT implementation. Time will tell, but in the decades that I have been in this space, I can’t recall such a positive strategic step taking place around a formal program.
