The goal of this challenge is to develop an agile methodology that is easy to understand, communicate and implement. The methodology could also lean towards an approach that leverages a series of tools to rapidly conduct the assessment and derive the ranking of zero trust implementations using the platinum, gold and silver constructs and using the threat assessment and resilience of the assessed zero trust implementation.
