The Department of the Air Force (DAF) has introduced a new Zero Trust Strategy aimed at bolstering the protection of critical assets and fortifying resilience against emerging cyber threats.

“The strategy aligns with the recently released DoD Fulcrum Digital Advancement Strategy, DoD Zero Trust Strategy and Reference Architecture, the DAF Enterprise Zero Trust Roadmap and the DAF Zero Trust Implementation Plan, reinforcing the Department’s dedication to enhancing Cybersecurity across the Air Force and  Space Force,” the Department of the Air Force Chief Information Officer’s LinkedIn post said.

This Zero Trust Strategy implements a capability within the DAF that enhances cybersecurity posture by streamlining access for Airmen & Guardians and increasing deterrents for competitors and adversaries. Its goal is to expedite the integration of next-generation warfare technologies.

Adopting a zero-trust approach guarantees that every request to access a DAF system undergoes rigorous validation, placing security at the forefront of every interaction. 

This proactive strategy not only protects DAF’s critical assets but also enhances its resilience against evolving cyber threats.
