, with Morey J. Haber, Chief Security Officer, BeyondTrust
The more the traditional perimeter continues to blur, the more zero trust comes into focus. The seismic shift to the cloud has also accelerated the demise of the traditional perimeter and the emergence of new security threats that organizations need to identify and protect against. NIST Special Publication 800-207 provides a playbook for organizations seeking guidance on how to adopt a Zero Trust architecture. This approach reduces the threat surface and helps to minimize the threat windows during which attackers can inflict damage. In addition to the NIST approach, organizations can further adopt Zero Trust principles by leveraging an identity-centric zero trust path, further helping to protect against everything from simple malware to advanced persistent threats.
Many organizations have begun to embrace Zero Trust frameworks and are building these into their security strategies. Understanding your barriers to Zero Trust will also help you forge the best path to optimally securing your environment, including upgrading from legacy applications and architectures to ones that support Zero Trust.
In this session you will learn.
