A future-proof security model for a modern, mobile government
The shift to telework has required many federal agencies to consider new security approaches to fill in the gaps between traditional network-centric security that is not built to scale to a dynamic telework environment, the IT network architecture, and various cloud architectures.
To address these complexity and cybersecurity issues, agencies are turning to policies including CISA’s Trusted Internet Connection (TIC) 3.0 that provide guidance on reducing risks and enabling secure connections to government networks.
TIC 3.0 opens the door for modern, hybrid cloud environments, and provides agencies with greater flexibility. Rather than focusing on a physical network perimeter that no longer exists, the guidance recommends considering each zone within an agency environment to ensure baseline security across dispersed networks. As agencies continue to support a remote and distributed workforce, this security approach will be critically important.
