  • Speakers: Dave Shackleford, Tim Garner

Today's zero trust architecture has evolved to include a variety of controls that can facilitate a comprehensive approach to protecting critical systems and sensitive data. In this webcast, Dave Shackleford, SANS analyst and senior instructor, begins by explaining the challenges organizations face in implementing zero trust effectively. He then walks through the key considerations organizations need to take into account when developing a comprehensive zero trust strategy, including authentication and authorization controls, network access and inspection controls, and monitoring and enforcement controls for both the network and endpoints. Shackleford also explains the roles of visibility, vulnerability and discovery in zero trust, as well as how zero trust can increase compliance.

Attendees at this webcast will learn to:

  • Develop awareness of common challenges associated with a microsegmentation access control model
  • Build a least privilege business case that addresses common business drivers, such as increasing numbers and types of endpoints and users, or improved flexibility in business continuity and contingency planning
  • Identify and implement capabilities critical to microsegmentation, including policy discovery, policy validation and simulation, and host-based enforcement
  • Apply microsegmentation and zero trust initiatives in ways that positively impact industry compliance requirements such as SWIFT CSP, HITRUST and PCI DSS
