New guidance on zero trust details more prescriptive implementation practices

The National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence recently released a preliminary draft of its most recent version of the NIST Cybersecurity Practice Guide on Implementing a Zero Trust Architecture, and these updates signal a turning point for how organizations implement zero trust architecture, says Okta’s Federal Chief Security Officer Sean Frazier in a new interview.

While previous guides focused more on the “what” and “why” of zero trust, this guide focuses on the “how,” with identity being the first pillar of the journey to zero trust, Frazier told CyberScoop.

Frazier shares his perspective on the impact this guidance will have among federal agencies and the key ways IT leaders can approach identity as both a holistic security strategy and a means to improve digital experiences for citizens.

Watch the full interview with Frazier and learn more about how the updated guidance in this draft guide affects public and private organizations.
