What is the Zero Trust Movement and how could your organisation benefit from adopting the Model?
With an ever-growing number and severity of Cyber-Threats impacting on organisations across the world, previous security policies are no longer protecting businesses. Worryingly, organisations are often ill prepared for a Cyber-Attack and only prioritise Cyber Security after an attack.
Trust is essential to operating business so to adopt a Zero Trust Movement can be seen as somewhat of an oxymoron. Traditional Network Security relied upon a model sometimes described like a castle and a moat. The walls or the moat protect the inner castle and are inherently trusted to be secure however when an attacker breaks past the walls they are trusted. Which leads to the attacker being given free rein. Although difficult to obtain access it can still be achieved in many cases.
The Zero Trust Movement offers a solution where no-one is trusted. It is assumed that there is security risks everywhere and users must verify to gain access to all data and applications.
“Zero trust is a way of thinking, not a specific technology or architecture,” says Gartner VP Analyst Neil MacDonald.
How can your organisation benefit from adopting the Zero Trust Movement?
When comparing the Zero Trust Model to somewhat outdated Castle and Moat Models the level of security is by far superior. Zero Trust offers organisations enhanced security and protection. Which reduces the likelihood of a Cyber-Attack taking hold. The consequences of a Cyber-Attack can be severe and extremely detrimental to your organisation in the short and long term.
