GovLoop Zero Trust Guide cover

Why is a buzzword like zero trust not only getting attention, but also an entire presidential executive order with impending deadlines and budget dollars at the federal, state and local levels? In lay terms, what does it really mean for the government workforce, for the public and the way we interact with one another? For this GovLoop guide, we’re taking a unique approach to exploring the zero-trust paradox in a way that centers you, not tools or foreign concepts that everyday employees can’t grasp.

Cybersecurity affects us all, so we wanted to make this resource inclusive. We are taking the best of what human-centered design and intentional language can teach us about effectively communicating major security shifts that are impacting and will continue to impact how you work, where you work and your ability to serve a diverse public using technology effectively and securely.

We are taking the best of what human-centered design and intentional language can teach us about effectively communicating major security shifts that are impacting and will continue to impact how you work, where you work and your ability to serve a diverse public using technology effectively and securely.

The purpose of this guide is to explain in plain language how government employees can better communicate and capitalize on a growing trend called zero-trust security. Zero trust can take on different definitions, depending on whom you ask. It’s a philosophy, a framework, a collection of principles for designing and protecting agency networks. But the bottom line is that agencies want to minimize risk and uncertainty when ensuring that the right people have the right level of access to agency networks, data and resources.

  • A pathway for those who were previously relegated to a location due to the sensitive nature of their work
  • An intentional focus on restoring and building trust between government and the public to facilitate seamless experiences and exchanges
