Zero Trust Virtual DoD Symposium


Join the conversation with defense, industry, and academic experts to emphasize the need and value of Zero Trust to national security and plan the way ahead.

The Department of Defense (DoD) recently published several documents to provide guidance to secure and defend DoD information, systems, and infrastructure using Zero Trust principles. We also acknowledge that protecting and securing the DoD information enterprise is not solvable by technology alone; it requires a change in mindset and culture. Success depends on increased collaboration among academia, industry, and government.

Zero Trust is the foundation necessary to counter major cybersecurity threats. It’s an approach that focuses on protection of data and verification at each step of an online interaction. Zero Trust provides an additional protective barrier to a network breach and protects the data within the networks and information systems.

This virtual event is sponsored by the Defense Acquisition University, MIT Lincoln Laboratory, and the DoD Zero Trust Portfolio Management Office.
