Software Engineering Institute Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States

The Software Engineering Institute (SEI) is hosting Zero Trust Industry Days 2023 to collect information from those who develop solutions for implementing a zero trust architecture. Contribute your ideas, solutions, and experiences to help organizations form a zero trust implementation that meets their mission goals, budget, and time frame.

SEI Zero Trust Industry Days 2023 is a request for information (RFI) exercise. This two-day exercise will be held in a hybrid environment on the campus of Carnegie Mellon University on October 25-26, 2023. It will focus on how organizations can comply with the following five guidance documents:

We need 12 volunteers from established providers of zero trust solutions—vendor organizations, Federally Funded Research and Development Centers (FFRDCs), other research organizations, and other solution providers—to apply to present at SEI Zero Trust Industry Days 2023.

Accepted presenters will develop and propose a solution for a scenario we provide, which involves a company setting up a chip manufacturing facility on an island, where there may be loss of connectivity and cloud services for short or extended periods of time. You will also be asked to participate in one of two panel discussions.  

Once we vet and approve your request, we will notify you, give you more details about the scenario, and ask you to complete the following activities within 30 days:

  • Develop a proposal that meets the requirements specifically selected from the four guidance documents listed above.
  • Ensure that the proposal stays within the budget provided in the scenario.
  • Create a set of artifacts that support your proposal. (See the list of recommended artifacts below.)
  • Create a 60-minute presentation that describes your proposal.

Artifacts Supporting Your Proposal: To support your proposal, we recommend that you develop artifacts, such as the following, which we think would be particularly valuable to organizations implementing a zero trust architecture:

  • a cybersecurity architecture strategy
  • zero trust roadmap, both near term (0-2 years and long term (3-5 years), that address the four guidance documents listed above
  • a zero trust implementation plan
  • projected impact on the organization’s training needs to implement your proposal
  • total cost of operation, including anticipated costs, potential cost savings, and ongoing support and maintenance costs
  • the effect on users (e.g., how they log in, the workflows they follow, the types of information that will be logged and monitored)
