NSA Issues Document on Improving Data Security Using Zero Trust Pillars

The National Security Agency has released guidance for enhancing data security and protecting access to data at rest and in transit.

The cybersecurity information sheet “Advancing Zero Trust Maturity Throughout the Data Pillar” lays down recommendations to ensure that only authorized individuals can access sensitive data. The document also ensures that organizations can still integrate the recommendations into a comprehensive zero trust framework, NSA .gov reported

Dave Luber, director of cybersecurity at the NSA, said that with the increasing capability of malicious actors to infiltrate networks and access sensitive data, adopting the pillars of the zero trust framework plays a vital part in achieving a higher cyber posture.

The agency has been highlighting the importance of zero trust principles amid growing cyberthreats. In early March, it released a CIS to help organizations strengthen internal network control and contain network intrusions using zero trust principles.

It also issued a document in March 2023 that highlights the role played by zero trust principles in safeguarding identity, credential and access management systems.
