The Defense Department’s chief information officer today released the nearly 400-page “Zero Trust Overlays” document¬†designed to serve as both a road map and guide for helping the department achieve goals set forth in a 2021 executive order signed by President Joe Biden.

“The zero trust overlays are another tool in the department’s toolbox supporting components’ execution by providing clear guidance on which controls facilitate specific zero trust activities and outcomes,” said Dave McKeown, DoD’s deputy CIO for cybersecurity and chief information security officer.
