When the COVID-19 pandemic broke out in 2020, many organizations were forced to digitize at a speed exceeding their security capabilities. Remote work meant that employees accessed company networks from potentially unsafe end devices. Today, many in the e-commerce business work in a hybrid mode – partly from home, partly from the office – and are thus potential insider threats.
According to today’s guest in our Speaker Spotlight, Rajan Barara, Director of Product Management for Identity at Entrust, Zero Trust can help mitigate the risk of insider threats. At its core, Zero Trust stipulates that trust should never be the default setting and that access requests should always be verified. This can also mean, that employees should in most instances have the least possible access privileges and be granted access just in time (JIT).
Together with Wolfgang Goerlich, Advisory CISO for Cisco Secure, Gerald Horst, Partner Digital Identity EMEA at PwC, and Michael Jones, Identity Standards Architect at Microsoft, Rajan will discuss the future of Zero Trust in a panel entitled Zero Trust: Where do We Want to be in Five Years? at the European Identity and Cloud Conference 2023.
