DOD to Review Zero Trust Plans of Service Branches, Components

The Department of Defense is set to advance its zero trust implementation efforts on Monday with the expected submission of 43 action plans from the military services and component agencies.

The DOD tasked its organizations to detail how they aim to achieve zero trust by 2027, Federal News Network reported.

Randy Resnick, director of the zero trust program office under the department’s chief information officer, said he expects 80 percent to 90 percent of action plans to meet or exceed expectations while the rest will need more support. Speaking at the recent Cyber Beacon Conference, he explained that his team will use measures created by the CIO earlier in 2023 to evaluate each submission fairly.

Resnick noted that each organization’s implementation plan could be categorized based on whether they take an on-premises, cloud or hybrid course of action. His team could have a better perspective of the DOD’s zero-trust infrastructure situation by mid-December, he added.

The department released its zero trust strategy and implementation plan in November 2022.
