While agencies strive to meet zero trust requirements, what roadblocks do they face? Which of OMB’s zero trust security goals (identity, devices, networks, applications, and data) are taking precedence and which are falling behind? MeriTalk and Merlin Cyber surveyed 150 Federal cybersecurity executives to explore momentum, priorities, and challenges around the evolution to zero trust.

In part one of a four-part webinar series, MeriTalk will sit down with IT industry and public sector experts to specifically address the identity pillar of CISA’s Zero Trust Maturity Model. We’ll discuss optimal maturity, progress to date, and expected challenges in areas like authentication, visibility, automation, and orchestration.

Join us February 16, 2022, at 10:00 a.m. EST for answers to:

  • Where does identity rank in terms of agencies’ zero trust priorities?
  • Which of CISA’s identity goals will be the most challenging to achieve?
  • What will optimal maturity look like in 2022, and how can industry and agencies work together to reach it?
