The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has released a white paper titled, Planning for a Zero Trust Architecture: A Guide for Federal Administrators.
Zero trust has become a critical framework for cybersecurity, as organisations move away from perimeter-based security. It is a far-reaching concept that is based on the concept of no implicit trust across systems, instead requiring users to be authenticated in each instance when they are attempting to access sensitive information and systems.
The paper outlines NIST’s recommendations for migrating to a zero trust architecture (ZTA), outlining how system administrators can implement ZTA within their organisation. NIST lays out an abstract architect and a map of how enterprises, federal agencies, or other organisations can move forward with a transition to ZTA.
If you’re looking to move to a ZTA but are struggling with a small security team or expertise in securing your systems, our team can help. Our CREST approved team can conduct an in-depth assessment of your existing infrastructure, outlining a path that your organisation can take to implement zero trust. Contact us to learn more.
