To help secure the .gov during the unprecedented surge in telework, CISA released the TIC 3.0 Interim Telework Guidance document in support OMB Memorandum 20-19 and the surge in teleworking. This document provides security capabilities for remote federal employees securely connecting to private agency networks and cloud environments. CISA recognizes that it is not comprehensive; the scope is limited to scenarios in which teleworkers access sanctioned cloud services.
CISA encourages agencies to read and review the Trusted Internet Connections (TIC) homepage and associated guidance for TIC 3.0 as the primary avenue to answer outstanding questions. However, to aid agencies in implementing the guidance, CISA maintains this list of frequently asked questions (FAQ) for agencies’ reference.
CISA has released final versions of three of the TIC 3.0 core guidance documents, representing the conclusion of the request for comments (RFC) and adjudication period following the issuance of the draft documents in December 2019. A summary of the comments, and CISA's response, is available in the Response to Comments on Draft TIC 3.0 Guidance Documentation.
