Zero Trust: Bringing the ‘Trust’ Back to the Individual
Scott Ferguson – Executive Editor, ISMG / Tony Lauro – Director of Technology & Security Strategy, Akamai Technologies
An increasingly distributed workforce and digital transformation initiatives have increased businesses’ attack surface. Traditional methods of ensuring employees’ identity are too complex and still leave the network open to attack. For enterprises looking to increase security and allow workers easy access to the apps they need, how can a zero trust model bring that trust back to the individual? Is it time for IT and security to rethink the access model for both employees as well as third-party individuals? At the same time, zero trust means different things to different people – let’s share a discussion on the journey to fully implement zero trust access?
Please join ISMG’s Scott Ferguson for an exclusive Virtual Roundtable that will draw from the experiences of the attendees, sharing thoughts on how they can create a model of zero trust, while ensuring employees have access to the applications that they need to do their jobs.
Discussion topics will include:
- Why are some businesses still relying on older technologies that are complex and take too long to configure properly in a rapidly changing and competitive environment?
- What can IT and security teams do to ensure trust of both employees and third parties who need access?
- Why has the trust issue been so difficult to solve?
Joining Scott to provide expert insight and case studies is Tony Lauro, Director of Technology & Security Strategy from Akamai Technologies.
