Title

Zero-Trust Architecture for K-12 Institutions

Summary

Earlier this month, President Biden published an executive order on improving the nation’s cybersecurity defenses. One of the most important parts of the executive order adopting “Zero-trust architecture” in government-funded institutions (like K-12 education). I'd like to talk about what Zero-Trust really means, and what technologies schools need to implement to achieve this standard: Data exfiltration protection, dual-factor authentication, next-generation firewalls, and more.
