Practical Steps to Move Towards Zero Trust

October 7, 2021

As if we don’t have enough to worry about. The pandemic has forever changed how businesses and their employees work. The hybrid work environment is here to stay in some form. Cloud services are the norm. Cybersecurity needs to be top of mind for everyone. As more employees and services are virtual, how do we securely work in the new world? Zero Trust is the future. We need to validate that users are who they say they are and that there is authorized access to our data, no matter where it is located. CSO has a post to help you implement Zero Trust in five easy steps.

  1. Know what zero trust really means
  2. Identify what you want to protect
  3. Design the network from the inside out
  4. Log all traffic
  5. Commit to the long run, but take those first steps

Good advice. Just take baby steps. You don’t need to go nuclear and go big bang with Zero Trust. A very important point of the implementation is to log all data. You can’t make informed decisions if you don’t know how the data flows.
