2022 SANS Solutions Forum - A Practical Journey Towards Zero Trust Adoption

There is no doubt that Zero Trust has become one of the main topics in the cybersecurity industry. Since the US Federal Government mandated agencies to accelerate the adoption of Zero Trust and issued detailed guidelines on implementing a Zero Trust Architecture in the second half of 2021, Zero Trust has become both the ‘de facto’ cybersecurity approach and a controversial concept used by some as a marketing ploy.

But what is Zero Trust really about? The broad theme of Zero Trust is about reducing implicit trust throughout the enterprise. It is a model that can be best described as a journey towards better information security. A journey to takes organizations from an old non-defensible architecture based on compliance, controls, and a static protection oriented mindset, to a defensible security architecture based on continuous, contextual verification, dynamic threat informed defense, and risk-based adaptive trust.

Join Ismael Valenzuela, author and lead instructor of Security 530: “Defensible Security Architecture and Engineering: Implementing Zero Trust for the Hybrid Enterprise”, as he chairs the 2022 SANS Zero Trust Forum, where we will address tools, solutions and technologies that can provide the telemetry, detection, automation, orchestration and intelligence needed to support a journey towards adopting a Zero Trust model.
