Title: "Zero Trust: Survival of the Fittest"
Abstract: Many organizations are struggling to keep up with the evolving cybersecurity landscape, and have been relying on perimeter security solutions to keep malicious entities out of their infrastructure. With the hype of Zero Trust (ZT), organizations have been trying to figure out how to modernize their cybersecurity architecture, but are questioning where to start. Successful implementation of a Zero Trust Architecture (ZTA) requires a change in technologies, a change in processes, and a change in mindsets. This talk will provide an overview of Zero Trust, key technology trends that organizations are using to move to a ZTA, and the people and process challenges that slow ZT adoption.
