The U.S. government’s Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency (aka CISA) is responsible for monitoring and improving IT security for all federal departments and outside vendors that do business with these departments. The goal of the CISA is to protect the country’s critical infrastructure from cyber-attacks.
The CISA Zero Trust Maturity Model is a collection of best practices designed to help organizations implement zero trust protocols across five distinct areas:
- Applications and Workloads
Each of these pillars includes general details regarding the following cross-cutting capabilities:
- Visibility and Analytics
- Automation and Orchestration
The first step an organization must take when implementing a zero trust architecture is to assess their current systems, personnel, and processes and how they can support the journey to zero trust. From there, the company will move through the Zero Trust Maturity Model stages, beginning with Traditional and advancing to Initial, Advanced, and Optimal levels. Each stage of progression requires greater levels of protection to meet the CISA standards.
