August 2021 Podcast
Geoffrey T. Sanders

Geoff Sanders, a senior network defense analyst in the SEI's CERT Division, discusses zero trust adoption and its benefits, applications, and available resources.

“When a user is compromised, the VPN just sees that user coming through, and there is really no tracking or any additional things typically that go on to see what that behavior is. Zero trust modernizes this approach by removing that implied trust , hence the name zero trust. We are going to trust nothing implicitly.”

Abstract

Zero trust adoption is a security initiative that an enterprise must understand, interpret, and implement. Enterprise security initiatives are never simple, and their goal to improve cybersecurity posture requires the alignment of multiple stakeholders, systems, acquisitions, and exponentially changing technology. This alignment is always a complex undertaking and requires cybersecurity strategy and engineering to succeed. In this SEI Podcast, Geoff Sanders, a senior network defense analyst in the SEI's CERT Division, discusses zero trust adoption and its benefits, applications, and available resources.
