Panel: A Tactical Approach to Zero Trust Architecture for Web Application Security in Government

Zero trust architecture at its core increases cyber defenses and reduces threats to data exposure, which is more critical than ever as web applications remain a top attack vector for gaining access to sensitive systems and information; attacks on web apps increased from 31.5% in 2020 to 53.6% in 2021, according to Kapersky.

Fortunately, new guidance from the Department of Defense (DoD) presents seven pillars that are critical to ZTA success – of which web application security (AppSec) and data protections are fundamental. Rethinking the implementation of security access requires a dynamic, multi-pronged approach, especially as more agencies make the migration to cloud services to accelerate software development and technology acquisition. As agencies fine-tune their strategies for implementing ZTA, there are fundamental steps they should take to ensure that they’re improving risk posture as effectively as possible, especially when designing strategies to protect web applications and data.

Join this webinar for tactical guidance that includes:

  • Which pillars are most critical to focus on for AppSec, especially when integrating and automating vulnerability management across the software development lifecycle.
  • Steps agencies can take to create an action plan following the DoD’s ZTA guidance, as well as guidance from the Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA).
  • How modern AppSec tools can assist with providing greater visibility into an agency’s overall risk posture, including analytics that provide deeper guidance.
  • Why automation is vital for vulnerability validation, and how modern AppSec tools can help with orchestration for smoother workflows and processes.
