There is no denying recent events have accelerated the pace of change in the security landscape. The move to remote working has required flexibility, yet has brought with it increased vulnerability with hacking, phishing and attacks on cloud‐based data on the rise.
On the positive side, organizations are undergoing a philosophical shift on their security standpoints. The ‘castle and moat style’ defence mechanism is no longer appropriate now employees are operating beyond the brick and mortar boundaries of the business, and the focus has shifted away from firewalls and virtual private networks to securing individuals and their devices.
The case for a zero-trust model is becoming more relevant in today’s operating environment. The way we store, manage and control access to data has seen a huge transformation in recent years and, as the enterprise evolves into cloud-based services and Saas applications, so too must the security model advance to support the distributed enterprise.
Join Verizon and a select group of security executives for this roundtable discussion on why the principles of zero-trust are becoming more vital in the modern IT environment. You’ll also consider what zero-trust means for cybersecurity policies and practices and the implications of the human factor on your security.
