Zero trust is increasingly becoming a critical component of cybersecurity as threats resort more to data-centric attacks, said Garrett Yee, General Dynamics Information Technology’s vice president and general manager for the U.S. Army and defense agencies sector.

In an interview with Armed Forces Communications & Electronics Association International, Yee shared his short- and long-term outlook for zero trust and how artificial intelligence is impacting tactical decision-making.

He said that organizations will likely develop ZT maturity models that are dependent on budgets and threats. He emphasized the importance of bolstering ZT security posture despite the cost and complexity of such an implementation.

Yee added that tactical-edge ZT innovations will focus on mission-relevant information sharing with coalitions and allies. He also noted that ZT systems will need to keep up with the speed of a military mission to secure data that are used by warfighters.

On the subject of AI, Yee called for greater government and industry partnership and investment to maximize AI empowerment in combat.
