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. It is broadly supportive of a wide spectrum of architectural implementations including:
- Virtual Private Network (VPN) users,
- Virtual Desktop Interfaces (VDI), and
- Zero Trust environments.
The guidance offers service providers with a sample template to reference when mapping their capabilities with the TIC 3.0 telework capabilities.
The guidance is not a use case nor an overlay and is not considered a component of the TIC 3.0 core guidance documents. The guidance is short-term for Calendar Year 2020 and is expected to be incorporated into a Remote User Use Case later.
Additional information regarding the TIC program is available on the program's CISA web page.
