When it comes to securing remote access, the zero trust concept has its appeal. More of a philosophy than a set of procedures, zero trust requires a holistic look at security. Is it practical for every organization? Why does it really matter? What are the challenges to implementing it? What about the Internet of Things? What role might AI play?

This webcast explores those questions and provides guidance on defining trusted users and devices, and how to integrate identity and network. It will address how to build a business case for zero trust, addressing business drivers such as cloud environments and business continuity needs. Join SANS Senior Instructor Dave Shackleford and BlackBerry VP of Sales Engineering Rich Thompson as they discuss these topics and the future of zero trust.
