Government Agencies Move to a Zero Trust Model with Application Security Testing
The Mandate for Application Security in Your Zero Trust Approach
Mandates are pushing the U.S. Government to a Zero Trust Model, where no user or system is automatically trusted. Federal agencies need to consider dedicated application security testing in addition to ongoing compliance requirements.
The checklist below highlights certain requirements for federal agencies and select defense organizations to reach compliance with recent mandates as they shift to the cloud and harden their assets overall. These requirements include:
- M-22-09, Section D: Applications and Workloads
- Binding Operational Directive 22-01
- Binding Operational Directive 20-01
- FISMA, CMMC, & NIST Compliance
