Zero Trust as the foundation of productivity and agility in the age of dynamic work

Traditional workplace of the future projects have suddenly become of strategic importance as organisations seek to setup their workforce for a more dynamic “work from everywhere” reality. If done right, productivity has proven to even increase (as does employee satisfaction and loyalty). However most organisations are starting their journey on the back of a technology stack that was build in and for the demands of the past and a security concept that was designed to protect the perimeter. To unleash the full potential of the new normal the ability of securing access to all applications – not just that handful of collaboration tools like Microsoft Teams, Slack or Zoom - that people need to get their work done is a necessity. With a mix of applications still on premise, new cloud services growing weekly and a fragmented Active Directory landscape and a diverse set of silo security tools in place, this new desired state seems like a very distant goal despite the need for short term success.

Lets discuss how by implementing a Zero Trust strategy initial investments can be preserved, your workforce will be more productive and more secure and the burden of passwords may even disappear completely.


Discussion Topics Include:

● What are the security challenges of cloud and mobile adoption?
● With the need to manage access across a variety of users, networks and devices, can we still enforce security on a single network perimeter, and what are the alternatives?
● How do you balance security – ensuring the right people have access to the right resources at the right time – while maintaining a good end user experience?
● How do you manage the often siloed identities and credentials created as a result of increased adoption of disparate tools and systems employees are demanding
● With more than 80% of today’s data breaches are caused by compromised or poor credentials in attacks like phishing, credential stuffing, password spray. Organizations can't always trust users based just on a username/passwords. How can organisations verify trust in the user and the device before granting access?
