Zero Trust Implementation Strategy


The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has been implementing zero trust mandates for years. DHS leadership established a Zero Trust Action Group, and later a Zero Trust Integrated Product Team, incorporating technical leadership from across the Department—and together, these teams have made impressive progress.

This strategy establishes a shared vision that better protects resources, stabilizes cybersecurity budgets, and accelerates mission outcomes—all at the same time. This strategy will also allow the Department to pursue a shared zero trust vision while addressing shared challenges, including resource scarcity, legacy technology, and a nascent shared services environment.
