Cyber Modernization in the Public Sector: Zero Trust Begins with Identity

Presented by

Jack Poller - Senior Analyst, ESG and Steve Caimi, Okta Cyber Specialist

About this talk

In May 2021, the White House issued a landmark Executive Order (EO) that accelerated cybersecurity modernization across the federal government. It shined a bright light on Zero Trust, a radical departure from outdated, ineffective security architectures. The EO required every agency to adopt Zero Trust, and it directed NIST, CISA, and OMB to develop clear guidance and best practices help them accomplish it. Zero Trust isn’t just for the federal government, or large institutions with big budgets. It’s gaining traction across the entire public sector, from state and local government to higher education, because it drives efficiency and efficacy. It’s the cyber modernization approach that addresses tomorrow’s risks and improves the user experience today. In this engaging webinar, ESG Senior Analyst, Jack Poller, is joined by Okta Cyber Specialist, Steve Caimi, to explore zero trust, its best practices and success strategies. You’ll learn: - About the Executive Order and how it’s transforming the nation’s cybersecurity - The definition of Zero Trust and how it differs from outdated security architectures - Why Identity is the starting point for Zero Trust success - How Zero Trust drives efficiency and improves the end user experience
