The phrase “DoD is leading the way” is one that has been largely absent from conversations having to do with information technologies and cybersecurity. Commercial sectors such as banking are more frequently described as being on the “cutting edge,” while the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) is often labeled a “technology laggard.” But that distinction is neither fair nor entirely accurate. DoD is leading the way in moving to a “zero trust” architecture for protecting its IT infrastructure. Where DoD leads, the aerospace and defense industry and other parts of the federal government may follow, thereby improving national security overall. I have written more on this subject here.
