CISA, Partners Release Guidance for Modern Network Access Security

Leaders can review the guidance for assistance with remote computing environments.

Cybersecurity In A Bubble

The Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Administration (CISA), in partnership with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), recently released their Modern Approaches to Network Access Security guidance. CISA partnered with New Zealand’s Government Communications Security Bureau (GCSB); New Zealand’s Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-NZ); and The Canadian Centre for Cyber Security (CCCS) in generating the release.

The guidance urges business owners of all sizes to move toward more robust security solutions—such as Zero Trust, Secure Service Edge (SSE), and Secure Access Service Edge (SASE)—that provide greater visibility of network activity. Additionally, this guidance helps organizations to better understand the vulnerabilities, threats, and practices associated with traditional remote access and VPN deployment, as well as the inherent business risk posed to an organization’s network by remote access misconfiguration.

CISA and its partners encourage leaders to review the guidance to help with the prioritization and protection of remote computing environments.
