Zero Trust must be the worst name in the history of Security. But is it just a bad name? Does it really offer worthwhile goals or is it an overkill? I hear sales pitches for it, like for many other security solutions, that concentrate on "What we can't allow anymore because of changed security landscape" all the time. Why does security have to be so negative? A well done Zero Trust environment gives you "the ability to work as efficiently and securely, whether you are sitting in Starbucks or the corporate office" - Which I believe most of us want. Come and listen to this talk about rights and wrongs of how to achieve Zero Trust and how keep Security as what it's meant to be - a support function for a happy workforce.
