Tools to drive your Zero Trust implementation

Today, someone said on a call that implementing a zero-trust model, was as difficult as learning a new language and did not know where to start.

PowerPoint Presentation I am trying to describe the areas and provide my peers with ideas on where to start with the basics of zero-trust. As you begin to assess your Zero Trust readiness and begin to plan on the changes to improve protection across identities, devices, applications, data, infrastructure, and networks. CIOs and IT personnel should consider these key areas to help drive the Zero Trust implementation more effectively.

  1. Strong authentication: Ensure strong multi-factor authentication and session risk detection as the backbone of your access strategy to minimize the risk of identity compromise.
  2. Policy-based adaptive access: Define acceptable access policies for your resources and enforce them with a consistent security policy engine that provides both governance and insight into variances.
  3. Micro-segmentation: Move beyond simple centralized network-based perimeter to comprehensive and distributed segmentation using software-defined micro-perimeters.
  4. Automation: Invest in automated alerting and remediation to reduce your mean time to respond (MTTR) to attacks.
  5. Intelligence and AI: Utilize cloud intelligence and all available signals to detect and respond to access anomalies in real time.
  6. Data classification and protection: Discover, classify, protect, and monitor sensitive data to minimize exposure from malicious or accidental exfiltration.
