The Zscaler™ Zero Trust Playbook for Federal Agencies

In May 2021, the Biden Administration released an Executive Order on Federal Cybersecurity to reduce vulnerabilities and improve agency defenses against cyberthreats. The guidelines set forth in the executive order are founded on the principles of zero trust: a framework built on context-aware, least-privileged access, and based on a default-deny threat posture.

Most agencies will need to approach zero trust in bite-sized chunks, setting priorities based on their unique needs. This playbook offers prescriptive guidance on key steps that can be taken over time, leveraging the security ecosystem to achieve the end goal of zero trust.

Read this playbook to understand:

  • What ‘zero trust’ is all about, and how approaches for implementing it may vary
  • Zero trust baseline requirements set forth from NIST and the cybersecurity executive order
  • Key pillars for methodically implementing zero trust and improving your agency’s defense posture
