Cyber, Zero Trust 25 MIN Watch
March 16th, 2022
With the White House’s Cyber Executive Order (EO) nearing its one year anniversary, Dr. Matthew McFadden, GDIT’s vice president for cyber, sat down with Eric Goldstein, executive assistant director for cybersecurity, at the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency to reflect on the progress meeting zero trust mandates in the past 12 months.
CISA is playing a critical role in supporting agencies as they develop cyber strategies that can stand up to the current threat landscape. The two cyber leaders discuss CISA’s top and future priorities, like monitoring adversaries and threat sharing across the government. And, as agencies begin their zero trust transformations, Mr. Goldstein discussed how they should benchmark progress and identify gaps.
Mr. Goldstein explained CISA’s new Shields Up initiative, which is a one stop shop for the latest info on cyber threats facing government and industry along with resources.
While many government workers have returned to their offices in some capacity, remote work is still a reality. Mr. Goldstein explained how his agency is focused on integrating emerging tech to ensure existing on-prem, cloud, and mobile devices will interact under a cohesive security architecture with a more remote workforce.
