NSA Issues Guidance on Strengthening Zero Trust Visibility, Analytics

The National Security Agency has released a new cybersecurity information sheet titled “Advancing Zero Trust Maturity Throughout the Visibility and Analytics Pillar,” providing a road map for organizations to strengthen their cybersecurity posture by improving visibility and data analysis capabilities within a zero trust framework.

The guidance contains infrastructure, tools, data and techniques essential to the visibility and analytics pillar. Organizations are advised to use the guidance to systematically mitigate risks and quickly identify, detect and respond to emerging cyberthreats, the NSA said.

Key recommendations include logging all relevant activities, centralizing security information and event management, regularly using security and risk analytics, developing user and entity behavior analytics, integrating threat intelligence and automating dynamic policies.

Dave Luber, the NSA’s director of cybersecurity, said visibility and analytics are essential for any zero trust strategy, empowering organizations to proactively manage risks and swiftly address cyberthreats.

The CSI is the latest addition to a series of publications by the NSA focused on enhancing zero trust implementation across all seven pillars of the framework.

The NSA recommends using the guidance continuously to ensure organizations can effectively adapt their cybersecurity protections to evolving threats.
