The Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency will release interim Trusted Internet Connections 3.0 guidance to mitigate network-related challenges as more federal employees telework due to the coronavirus pandemic, Federal News Network reported Friday.

Sources said CISA intends to help address the latency of establishing connection to agency networks through virtual private networks and to government cloud platforms as well as provide agencies more flexibility to keep their personnel linked to applications and data while maintaining security.

The interim policy will be effective only for the rest of 2020 as CISA works on the implementation guidance for TIC, which is expected to be released by spring.

The interim guidance will be based on the draft branch office use case that DHS issued in December.
