What Does Zero-Trust Security Mean for You?

Nothing is trusted inside or outside the network. Entry requires strict access controls, user authentication and continuous monitoring of networks and systems, among many elements. Users and devices that request access to resources are continually authenticated.

However, agencies also employ a powerful array of security solutions to keep government users and citizens’ data safe. Follow our coverage of federal cybersecurity efforts here for the latest on agencies’ IT security efforts.
