President Biden’s Executive Order (EO) has accelerated the crucial need to improve U.S. cybersecurity and move towards Zero Trust. When building a true Zero Trust Architecture (ZTA), it’s critical for agencies to understand that security solutions need to work together to provide the best line of defense.
Almost every attack today requires a stolen identity or privilege to execute and initially compromise an environment or to move laterally within a network. Agencies must verify every attempted access through proper identity controls with location awareness, identity authentication, MFA, and assume every access attempt is a threat actor until verified. Integrating market-leading solutions and applying the principle of least privilege (PoLP) are two powerful and well-recognized ways to secure agency systems, and two strong underlying themes in the EO.
