NSA Issues Guidance for Maturing Data Security

The National Security Agency (NSA) is issuing guidance for maturing data security and protecting access to data at rest and in transit. The recommendations in the Cybersecurity Information Sheet (CSI), “Advancing Zero Trust Maturity Throughout the Data Pillar,” are intended to ensure only those with authorization can access data. The capabilities outlined in the CSI integrate into a comprehensive Zero Trust (ZT) Framework. “Malicious cyber actors continuously increase their ability to infiltrate networks and gain access to sensitive data,” said Dave Luber, NSA’s Director of Cybersecurity. “Assuming that breaches will occur, implementing the pillars of the Zero Trust Framework is how we combat that activity.

This proposed law will create clearly defined protections and rights for Americans about data privacy while aiming to create enforcement mechanisms and eliminate the myriad of existing privacy laws. Following years of heated debate, this is a significant step in passing data privacy laws.
