Zero Trust Maturity Model

Revision Date

CISA’s Zero Trust Maturity Model is one of many roadmaps that agencies can reference as they transition towards a zero trust architecture. The maturity model aims to assist agencies in the development of zero trust strategies and implementation plans and to present ways in which various CISA services can support zero trust solutions across agencies.

The maturity model, which includes five pillars and three cross-cutting capabilities, is based on the foundations of zero trust. Within each pillar, the maturity model provides specific examples of traditional, initial, advanced, and optimal zero trust architectures.
