The concept of a zero trust architecture is fantastic, in theory. How realistic is it in a post-pandemic world? Businesses rushed to implement cloud applications at the start of the pandemic. Employees accessed those applications from shared home networks using myriad devices. Verifying a user’s identity in this current environment therefore seems challenging at best. Can an organization realistically adopt a true zero trust model, or is a ‘Trust-But-Verify’ approach more attainable?
CISO Street recently moderated a virtual CISO panel and asked panelists about their perspectives on current cyber trends and challenges. In this video, Richard Rushing, CISO for Motorola Mobility and Jeff Lush, CIO for Air University at U.S. Air Force share their thoughts on zero trust during the pandemic.
