Zero Trust to Enhance Insider Risk Capabilities

Per incident, the average cost of an Insider Risk event is $645,996. The frequency and impact of these events continues to climb, accelerated by a shift to remote work and the COVID-19 pandemic. Businesses must implement a Zero Trust Architecture (ZTA) to enhance their Insider Risk capabilities. Insiders, by nature, have access inside of what is traditionally considered the perimeter. As such, to mitigate these risks, a ZTAâs concept of âNever Trust, Always Verifyâ, naturally serves the need to protect the internal environment. ZTA's key tenets align with and enhance these capabilities in a number of ways. Utilizing micro-segmentation, establishing an identity context for traffic, and continuous review of access are all pieces that can help reduce organizational exposure and impact of Insider Risks.

How Can all These Vendors be "Zero Trust" Solutions?

Seemingly every security vendor out there claims to be "zero trust". This presentation will break down NIST 800-207 into its functional parts, and then provide a method by which any vendor can be compared (and challenged) to determine where their claim of being a zero- trust solution really sits. Because zero trust focuses on protecting resources and not network segments, existing security solutions don't always apply, despite their marketing claims. Attendees will leave with a better understanding of NIST 800-207 zero-trust architectural principles, functional components, and methods of application. They will also have a model by which they can align the development of their own security solution features to those architectural principals to 800-207 and challenge the claims of vendors to ensure their limited Information Security Budget provides the highest possible value.
