In the most recent Executive Spotlight interview, ExecutiveBiz spoke with Clay Goldwein, senior vice president of national security and justice at CGI Federal, to talk about the implementation of a zero trust framework at agencies to strengthen their cybersecurity. The Q&A also discussed federal cyber hygiene programs, artificial intelligence- and machine learning-related initiatives and innovation in the sector.
Here’s an excerpt from the interview with Goldwein:
“As a services provider, one of the challenges we face is that agencies can be apprehensive about starting the process. They are concerned that implementing a zero trust architecture will be disruptive to their day-to-day operations, impacting productivity.
Agencies can minimize the potential for disruption by taking an incremental approach to implementing a Zero Trust Architecture. For example, a schedule can be designed to pause between initiatives, allowing for confirmation that the intended outcome was delivered before planning the next phase.”
