ISMG’s Executive Roundtables focus on specific challenges being faced by information security executives in today’s cybersecurity landscape. Moderated by one of ISMG’s Executive Editors and a guest industry expert, Roundtables give cybersecurity professionals the opportunity to discuss threats and controls with a handful of market leaders in an informal setting, from which you will emerge with new ideas and solutions you can immediately put to work to improve your own organization’s defensive posture.
Understanding What Zero Trust Means for Business
The term “zero trust” has been all the buzz, but did you know that the concept was first introduced almost a decade ago by Forrester Research? Today, 78% of teams want to adopt a zero trust model. 59% will adopt zero trust network access (ZTNA) services within the next 12 months.
But all the attention has given rise to a proliferation of solutions, each promising zero trust. It’s important for IT leaders to understand why zero trust network access is important for the business, how to achieve it, and how to avoid vendor overload while doing so.
If you are looking for new answers to these questions, please join ISMG’s Nick Holland for an exclusive roundtable that will draw from the experiences of the attendees, offering thoughts on how they have deployed zero trust within their enterprises.
Discussion topics will include:
- An overview of zero trust and its role helping to secure organizational assets
- An understanding of the key security tenets that make zero trust possible
- Guidance on how to eliminate blindspots in the organization and minimize attack surface
- A path to reduce operational expenses by removing need for legacy appliances
