Embracing the Zero Trust Journey: What's Next?
The Zero Trust security model is not a single technology, but a strategy, or even a programmatic approach that integrates elements of identity, network, application, data and cloud security to support a secure and agile business environment.

An executive order carrying Zero Trust requirements for federal agencies and several high-profile cyberattacks have hastened this sweeping shift in security - to require all users (inside or outside the organization) to be authenticated, authorized, and continuously validated. Zero Trust, which abandons the traditional "perimeter," is certainly no longer just a buzzword, though there remains some confusion about architecting Zero Trust systems.

Join ISMG's Anna Delaney for a moderated discussion that will draw from the experience of the attendees, offering insights on Zero Trust generally, along with its maturity over time, effective strategies, and related investments.

Discussion topics will include:

  • Are you able to properly outline the "stages" of Zero Trust maturity? And where are you on the journey?
  • What are the most common - and effective - strategies for embracing Zero Trust?
  • What specific investments are you making to expand Zero Trust in 2022, and beyond?
  • Long term, will security teams adhering to Zero Trust principles need to adapt to changing technologies? That's to say, while the solutions may differ over time, the "strategy" will remain the same, correct?


Joining Anna to provide expert insight and case studies is Tony Lauro, Director of Security Strategy at Akamai Technologies.
