Department of Defense (DoD) agencies are taking concrete steps to transition to a zero-trust architecture to protect critical data and systems, aided by directives from the White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and partnering agencies. Frameworks from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), Department of Defense (DoD), and Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) provide guidance for agencies to start the implementation of a zero-trust architecture.
Transitioning to a zero-trust architecture requires a fundamental reimagining of security operations centers (SOCs) and teams. SOCs have traditionally been structured around the role of the security operator rather than the data and lacked both automation and DevOps practices.
To establish a true zero-trust overlay across IT infrastructure, SOCs must move from a role-centric model, where individual members work with specific tools for tasks such as data analytics, governance, or ticketing, to a multidisciplinary SecOps approach. At the same time, they must become more data-centric, providing SecOps teams with greater visibility into security data and how it is used.
