2021: The Evolution of 'Zero Trust'Forrester's Chase Cunningham on Implementation of a Framework
In 2020, the "zero trust" conversation evolved from "What is it?" to "How do we achieve a zero trust architecture?" Chase Cunningham, a principal analyst serving security and risk professionals at Forrester, offers an outlook for what we can expect in 2021.
"COVID-19 has solidified the thought process that the perimeter no longer exists; it is now all about remote work and BYOD," he says.
What technologies can help organizations achieve a zero trust architecture? "To start with, one should invest in remote browser isolation, MFA, single sign-on and software-defined perimeter," says Cunningham, who will be a speaker at Information Security Media Group's Virtual Cybersecurity Summit: Zero Trust to be held Feb. 2-3.
In this video interview, Cunningham also discusses:
- The evolution of zero trust;
- How zero trust can work in a hybrid cloud environment;
- The relevance of zero trust outside of security.
