Making Sense of Zero Trust: Perspectives from Inside and Outside Government Organizations

Making Sense of Zero Trust

LinkedIn Live Webinar
Wednesday, August 11, 2021
1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. ET

The NIST National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence, the Identity Defined Security Alliance, and the National Cyber Security Alliance are joining forces to supply insights into real-world zero trust deployments in both the public and private sectors and to share resources available to help organizations implement zero trust architectures.

Adopting zero trust, whether driven by a government mandate or the shift to a modern security strategy to support remote work, can be challenging. Migrating an existing information technology ecosystem, particularly one with legacy applications and systems, requires investments in people, process, and technology to retool it to adhere to zero trust principles.

Join us and learn from organizations such as the U.S. Departments of Homeland Security and Education; Adobe; and Cisco, which are well down the path of implementing zero trust strategies as they reveal tactics, opportunities, and lessons learned. NIST's Scott Rose and Alper Kerman, along with the Defense Information Systems Agency and others will share resources that you can use to help guide your zero trust reference architecture designs and strategies.

Billington Cybersecurity Defense Summit

Thursday, April 22, 2021

NIST's  Alper Kerman will highlight the work of the NCCoE in zero trust architectures as part of a panel discussion at the inaugural Billington Cybersecurity Defense Summit from 10:00 a.m. ET until 2:30 p.m. ET on April 22. The event convenes senior industry and government decision-makers from the civilian, intelligence, and defense agencies as well as new cyber leaders in the Administration to chart the acute need for a paradigm shift toward data security and zero trust in the new normal.

Making Sense of the Landscape of Attacks and Defenses Against AI

Monday, May 17, 2021, 1:15 - 1:55 p.m. PST

AI-enabled technology is increasingly finding its way into our trusted systems, and new attacks and defenses for machine learning models are growing. As a result, it can be hard to know how resilient these systems are. Join us as we show how the NCCoE’s Securing AI lab can help make sense of the relationships between attacks and defenses, moving us toward useful metrics for trustworthiness. Learn more about this session and view the agenda.

Is Your Organization’s Confidential Data Really Confidential?

Tuesday, May 18, 2021, 11:35 - 12:15 p.m. PST

Data breaches can have far-reaching operational, financial, and reputational impacts. Join cybersecurity engineers who will discuss high-level architectures, data breach demos, and practical solutions to identify and protect the confidentiality of an enterprise’s data, as well as detect, respond to, and recover from incidents that affect data confidentiality. Learn more about this session and view the agenda.

Telehealth Cybersecurity: Secure Remote Patient Monitoring Ecosystem (panel discussion)

Wednesday, May 19, 2021, 11:35 - 12:15 p.m. PST

Remote patient monitoring (RPM) is a subset of telehealth that allows healthcare providers to monitor patients’ health data from home. RPM may rely on third-party systems and patient home networks, which may increase cybersecurity and privacy risks. This session will feature a panel of security and healthcare experts offering practical guidance on how to mitigate these risks. Learn more about this session and view the agenda.


Strengthening Resilience of Positioning, Navigation and Timing Services

Wednesday, May 19, 2021, 11:35 a.m. - 12:15 p.m. PST

Our nation’s critical infrastructure relies on PNT data from GPS and other systems. Disruptions to PNT data could have significant economic and national security implications. This session will discuss how industry can leverage NIST’s PNT cybersecurity profile to assess risks of PNT degradation or loss to their organization and take appropriate mitigation measures. Learn more about this session and view the agenda.


Trusted Internet of Things Device Onboarding and Lifecycle Management

Wednesday, May 19, 2021, 3:00 - 3:40 p.m. PST

Current methods for provisioning IoT device credentials can leave networks vulnerable to unauthorized devices and devices vulnerable to being taken over by unauthorized networks. This session will discuss how trusted network-layer onboarding can improve the security of IoT devices and integrate with attestation, application-layer onboarding, and MUD to protect devices throughout their lifecycles. Learn more about this session and view the agenda.
