Continuous Authorization to Operate (cATO)

Due to growing cybersecurity infrastructure and increasingly sophisticated cybersecurity threats, continuous monitoring of information security systems through automation is the best way to accurately assess vulnerability across a complex threat landscape.

However, continuous monitoring of information security systems has several challenges to address, including technology, governance, controls evolution, data models, standardized frameworks, data sharing, and auditor evolution, just to name a few.

Secure 5G

The mission of the Secure 5G Working Group is to advance communication between Government, industry, and academia, through identifying Secure 5G infrastructure and policies.

5G is opening the door to many emerging technologies that will be game-changing for the Government. Ultimately, agencies want to achieve the many benefits of fast and reliable 5G while operating through trusted networks.  Securing 5G involves addressing threats to infrastructure, supply chain, and networks, while also standardizing policies and environments to ensure a frictionless user experience. The Secure 5G Working Group will be poised to develop strategies and tools to help improve the security posture when it comes to 5G Technology Solutions for the Government.

Learn what Government experts at the ATARC-hosted roundtable shared about agencies moving 5G systems beyond prototyping in the coming years, and related needs to evaluate security and risks throughout the increasingly complex ecosystem of end user equipment, radio access networks, 5G core networks, and edge computing systems.
