While zero trust as a strategy is meant for every organization, attaining 100% zero trust is not, says Jay Hira, director of cyber transformation at EY in Sydney.

"As a strategy, every organization should work toward achieving zero trust. However, organizations have to tune the adoption keeping in mind business objective, risk profile and reducing the risk profile while aligning better with the business," he says.

"It is more about measuring capabilities that are being delivered by this program - whether it is in line with the principles of zero trust."

In a video interview with Information Security Media Group, Hira also discusses:

  • Why achieving a 100% zero trust framework is not for every organization;
  • What zero trust challenges concern CISOs the most;
  • Whether the zero trust framework is a good fit for every organization.

Hira is a cybersecurity strategy and transformation director with more than 15 years of international experience supporting financial services organizations to become more cyber resilient through zero trust adoption to build trust and attract more customers, enabling growth.
