Zero Trust and the Critical Role of Strong Authentication

The Executive Order on Improving the Nation’s Cybersecurity issued on May 12, 2021 requires federal agencies to develop a plan to adopt Zero Trust architectures within 60 days and multi-factor authentication within 180 days. With the increasing cyber attacks toward all areas of government, the executive order should serve as a guideline for state and local agencies to consider as well.

Join this panel of experts as they discuss:

  • Zero Trust and MFA implications related to the executive order
  • The role of strong authentication and why it is critical in a Zero Trust environment
  • Recommendations on how government agencies can assess their current architectures and move to a Zero Trust model
