Tech Spotlight: Applying the ‘Zero Trust’ Principles to Protect Your Enterprises Against Sophisticated Attacks
The recent cyberattacks have shown increased sophistication in the breadth of tactics used to penetrate, expand across, and persist in affected infrastructure. They have posed a serious threat to every organization. While the tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) that the bad actors utilized are not new to defenders, we have also come to realize that many organizations have once again been caught unprepared.
Companies should start or continue to adopt a ‘zero trust’ mentality across their environment to defend against such attacks. A ‘zero trust’ mindset creates a more resilient, consistent, and responsive posture to new incidents. It helps address gaps in unprotected devices, weak passwords, and gaps in multi-factor authentication (MFA) coverage that attackers can exploit.
The session will discuss:
- How a ‘zero trust’ framework will help build cyber resiliency across the environment;
- Factors that need evaluation before implementing a ‘zero trust’ framework;
- Improving user authentication and control using ‘zero trust’ principles.
