Zero Trust Architecture Solutions Forum - SANS + Corelight
Security has always been one of the prime concerns for any growing business. In a world where technology is continually evolving, companies are constantly stumbling onto new vulnerabilities. One wrong move in the data management space and companies leave themselves vulnerable to shattering attacks. The increasingly multifaceted landscape means that more groups are turning towards a zero-trust security framework. This approach asks companies to take their security enforcement strategy to the next level and recognize that existing approaches don't offer enough defense.
The implementation of Zero Trust accomplishes several things such as decreasing your overall attack surface since smaller parts of resources are exposed to users for more limited use than previously; limits lateral movement or “leapfrogging” to other vulnerable infrastructures once one endpoint is breached; limit the use of stolen credentials and other purloined access, whether it was acquired by a direct hack on the company or via outside sources such as dark web breach caches; and seek to make the organization’s crown jewels, your data, harder to breach so that hopefully attackers will give up and try someone else when they don’t quickly achieve broader access from an initial hack.
