Does Biden’s executive order on cybersecurity change your organization's approach to Zero Trust architecture? (https://www.whitehouse.gov/briefing-room/presidential-actions/2021/05/12/executive-order-on-improving-the-nations-cybersecurity/)

There's one thing to clarify with an executive order. The only thing it can enforce upon is government action or inaction. This order says government agencies can't purchase a cloud service that isn't approved by the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP), or any software that hasn't gone through this validation, so it impacts companies that service the government.

It's eyes wide open right now, for sure. In the past, when we’d do a security assessment I used to rely on architecture diagrams to know how the systems were interacting—not anymore. This is why I have to buy some capability that gives full transparency of how the data is moving and what systems are issuing/initiating an operational task to move it. Because the identity strategy doesn't capture that, it’s only looking at the human factor and not how those systems are interacting.
