“Dr. Zero Trust” Chase Cunningham Joins Keeper Security Public Sector Advisory Board

Today, Keeper Security have announced the appointment of Dr. Chase Cunningham to its Public Sector Advisory Board. Cunningham’s appointment reflects Keeper Security’s commitment to zero-trust security. Keeper’s early adoption of zero-trust architecture has become a model for national security and cybersecurity organisations preparing to invest in and implement zero trust. As an advisory board member, Cunningham will contribute his expertise to bolster Keeper’s ongoing efforts to meet the shifting cyber demands of the US government as it continues to set the pace toward a future of zero trust.

Cunningham, also known as ‘DrZeroTrust’, has over 20 years of experience in cyber forensics analytics including highly technical work centres within the NSA, CIA and FBI. He is also recognised as a pioneer in zero-trust architecture and market analytics.

Cunningham founded Forrester’s Zero Trust eXtended (ZTX) framework, guiding hundreds of thousands of organisations into the adoption of zero-trust security. His research has revolutionised the security industry, illuminating the efficacy of zero trust in a dynamic, hybrid public sector environment.

“Chase has been instrumental in the development of zero-trust frameworks, and we are thrilled to have him on our Public Sector Advisory Board,” said Darren Guccione, CEO and Co-founder of Keeper Security. “From the start, Keeper has adopted zero trust and zero knowledge as foundational technologies in our cybersecurity platform. The addition of Chase as a new advisor reinforces our vested commitment to protecting the public sector with innovative, next-gen cybersecurity solutions.”

Moving the nation toward zero-trust is a government-wide initiative to modernise the US federal government’s approach to cybersecurity, as mandated by the 2021 President’s Executive Order (EO) 14028. Civilian federal agencies must implement zero trust by September 2024 and many organizations are scrambling to prepare. Cunningham’s appointment to Keeper’s Public Sector Advisory Board will strengthen Keeper’s existing Keeper Security Government Cloud (KSGC) solution, which is already FedRAMP and StateRAMP authorised.

Dr. Cunningham says: “The initiatives the federal government is trying to solve for – cybersecurity, zero trust, national security – are moving targets, especially in the digital space. Keeper provides innovative FedRAMP and StateRAMP Authorised solutions that empower public sector organisations to achieve their goals. Keeper has been a driving force in making zero trust possible for a wide variety of organisations that do business in the public sector, and I’m excited to help them continue and scale that mission.”

The importance of zero-trust has been widely reported on in recent years. In fact, research has revealed that, for many organisations, zero-trust is core to a contemporary cybersecurity strategy.

Cunningham is the Vice President of Security Market Research at G2, a former Chief Cryptologic Technician for the NSA and a former Forrester analyst. Cunningham holds a PhD in Computer and Information Systems Security and Information Assurance, a Master’s in Information Security from Colorado Technical University and a Bachelor of Applied Science from American Military University. He brings deep technical expertise, numerous certifications and operational experience in cybersecurity, national security and zero-trust industries.
