The adoption of digital business models and new technologies opens up market opportunities but also increases cybersecurity and compliance risk. Zero trust security can deliver greater business resilience; however, these initiatives require a strategic approach that ensures the solutions and processes implemented align with the capabilities and goals of the organization. Adopting a zero-trust approach can provide sustained, robust security improvement and ensure that the organization maintains the operational capabilities required to deliver long-term protection of its entire digital business.

Join us on December 9th 2021 at 9:00 CET for the webinar with Mark Child, Research Manager Security at IDC and Stefaan Van Daele, Executive Security Architect from IBM when they join in discussion and share real life examples on why zero trust approaches to security and business operations have become a requisite and what your organization needs to consider as it develops its zero-trust strategy.

Building Towards Sustained Security Operational Excellence with Zero Trust

Mark Child

Research Manager, European Security, IDC CEMA

IDC has postulated a blueprint for security transformation that builds on a basis of security operational excellence and incorporates risk management to align security with the business. Digital business requires trust, between the organization, its employees, partners, and customers. 

Zero trust strategies contribute to this: least-privilege access controls ensure that appropriate access to resources is only granted to identified personnel using authorized equipment. Building this into infrastructure and processes delivers effective and efficient operational security and engenders trust among all users that their data and digital interactions are subject to appropriate protection.
