Due to the COVID-19 concerns and the CDC's recommendation to limit large public gatherings, attendance and audience participation for this event is now exclusively online.

Zero Trust is an important part of an overall digital transformation strategy because it recognizes the challenges of today's hybrid networks. Virtually every agency now has data and applications both on premises and in the cloud; The zero trust model secures those assets by authenticating both the users and their devices and by micro-segmenting the systems so that access to one part does not allow access to all. Advanced identity and access management and software-defined networks are key components of the new strategy.

At this FCW Workshop, cyber leaders from government and industry described their moves toward zero trust, the challenges of adapting existing systems and operations, and the benefits early adopters are seeing as attacks continue to multiply.
