Digital security enthusiasts are preparing to meet up at the District’s Zero Trust Security Summit 2020 on Tuesday, January 28.
The International Spy Museum (located at 700 L’Enfant Plaza, SW) will be hosting the annual event that from 7:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.
“As the secure perimeter continues to evolve, agencies are increasingly challenged to ensure only the right users and secure devices can access applications regardless of location. A zero-trust security model solves this problem by authenticating users and devices at every point of access,” the event brief explains.
The summit will promote the “zero-trust security model,” which is considered to be playing a significant role in federal IT modernization initiatives, ensuring that government agencies can verify all users and devices are trusted before they are permitted to access applications.
“At the Zero Trust Security Summit, the most influential government and tech leaders will highlight how the federal government is adopting the principles of zero-trust security to modernize their security and IT environments,” according to the organizers.
Speakers will elaborate on future security practices and how governments can reduce risk with a user-centric zero-trust security model.
