The Two Biggest Misconceptions About Zero Trust

CISO Panels

“Zero Trust” is a term on the tip of every CISO’s tongue. However, certain misconceptions about zero trust continue to circulate in the cybersecurity community and into board rooms. CISOs in turn must educate their senior executives and directors on what the term means and doesn’t mean. For example, there is no such thing as zero trust products. In addition, implementing zero trust does not make a system trusted. Identifying and dispelling these misconceptions are critical when deciding if a zero trust approach is right for your organization.

CISO Street recently moderated a virtual CISO panel and asked panelists to share their perspectives on current cyber trends and challenges. In this video, Ron Zochalski, CTO and CISO for Lake County Indiana shares the biggest zero trust misconceptions.

CISO Street’s recent webinar, Zero Trust is Not Enough, takes a deeper dive into this critical topic. Security executives from SentinelOne, Intel, and MITRE discuss technologies and tactics that go beyond zero trust to protect organizations from cyberattacks. Watch the replay here.
