Cloud Adoption Made Easier With TIC 3.0

OMB announced in September new guidance for how agencies can adopt four popular cloud models while still meeting security standards. That guidance is known as the Trusted Internet Connections (TIC) initiative 3.0.

The purpose of the TIC initiative is to enhance network security across the federal government. While previous iterations had focused on the consolidation of external connections and the deployment of common tools at access points, the program is now adapting to modern frameworks for government IT resources like the cloud. In this training, we share how agencies use TIC 3.0 to fuel IT modernization and transformation efforts.

Specifically, you’ll learn:

  • How TIC 3.0 provides four new approaches for agencies looking to use the cloud without sacrificing their security.
  • The biggest barriers still facing agencies hoping to modernize with the cloud and TIC 3.0.
  • How successful organizations have used TIC 3.0 to enhance security and operability in the cloud.
