I was fortunate to be able to attend our partner's ATARC 2022 Zero Trust Summit, on August 9, 2022, at the Marriott Marquis, Washington D.C. During the event, we heard several great panels and presentations focused on utilizing emerging technologies to help strengthen the integration of Zero Trust technology in Government, hosted by IT thought-leaders within government, academia and private industry.
The visionary keynote was presented by John Kindervag, Creator of Zero Trust, Senior Vice President, Cybersecurity Strategy, ON2IT Group Fellow at ON2IT Cybersecurity, Zero Trust Executive Steering Committee, Cloud Security Alliance. The slides are available here - https://learn.atarc.org/e/315131/08-ATARC-Zero-Trust-Slides-pdf/khg65/1858912828?h=1FxGlMY59zpHwX_kHMIZT2Ms66qL2QwW7-Eu2_LHglo

Paul,Aligning with existing ZT models and methodologies is definitely a sensible approach. There is some information on John's ZT deployment methodology guidance and perspective on ZT maturity in the slides and presentation recording I provided links to in the original post. There is a lot of additional info posted on the CSA Zero Trust Advancement Center's Resource Hub, including a link to the NSTAC report, the CISA ZT Maturity Model and a recording of another one of John's presentations. Additionally the CSA ZT working group will be developing materials to help illuminate and further elaborate guidance on these important topics in the coming months#. I hope this helps.
