The digital revolution has been reshaping every contour of the federal government. In line with this, the Potomac Officers Club annually convenes cyber experts, government leaders and industry visionaries at the 2024 Cyber Summit

Nystrom will serve as the panel moderator, leading the discussion on network security in a zero trust world alongside Core4ce’s Dr. Curtis Arnold, the U.S. Air Force’s Lt Col. Frank Jamerson and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence’s Kathryn Knerler.

In addition to zero trust, the cyber summit’s agenda includes sessions on CMMC, supply chain security, secure information sharing and more.


Zero Trust: Advancing the U.S. Government’s Cybersecurity

In response to cyber threats, federal agencies have embraced zero trust as a fundament of their cybersecurity strategies. The rapid adoption of this security model only proves that conventional perimeter-based defenses are no longer adequate against advanced cyber attacks.

Unlike traditional security models, zero trust is not limited to specific technologies or tools. Instead, it represents a security architecture and methodology for integrating diverse technologies, practices, and policies.

Zero trust focuses on five primary pillars: 

  1. Identity
  2. Devices
  3. Networks
  4. Applications and Workloads
  5. Data

In line with the federal government’s cybersecurity mandates, agencies are requested to develop their own zero trust implementation plans, with the U.S. Air Force leading the way in this endeavor. The U.S. Air Force’s application of zero trust has set a new standard for cybersecurity practices in the federal government.
