“We need to talk.” Those are difficult words to see in a text message or hear on voice mail. But we need to have a chat about “Zero Trust” and try and decern what it all means – for the security team, for your organization and ultimately for the business strategy. Like most things in cyber security the sudden realization that one small team trying to secure an organization of more than a 1000+ is futile. It needs a commitment from nearly every department, management and executive support. The reality is “Zero Trust” is a long journey with a destination which may never be completely arrived at. The story of Zero trust is born out of frustration with traditional IT approaches built on the insecurities of the Internet. Ian Thornton-Trump CD, CISO for Cyjax UK Ltd. has been presenting on Zero Trust for the last two years and will share his observations, frustrations and what he believes are the key ways your organization can move the ball forward. For some organizations with large technical debut and legacy equipment the journey may even be nearly impossible to start and require creative problem solving. This is an open Q & A format so bring the questions and we will find the answers.
