Zero Trust and the Battle to Block Data BreachesLatest Challenges: Cloud and IoT, Says 'Zero Trust Godfather' John Kindervag
Ten years since he coined the term "zero trust" while working as an industry analyst, John Kindervag, field CTO of Palo Alto Networks, sees CISOs increasingly being faced with the challenge of having to implement the "never trust, always verify" model across increasingly complex IT environments, including cloud and IoT.
In a video interview with Information Security Media Group at RSA 2020, Kindervag also discusses:
- The biggest surprises concerning the a security operating framework known as zero trust;
- How to extend zero trust to cloud, IoT and other environments;
- How security leaders' role has changed over the past decade;
- One thing every IT and security leader must do today.
Kindervag is the field CTO at Palo Alto Networks, where he advises both public and private sector organizations on how to solve their toughest cybersecurity challenges, including best practices in the design and building of zero trust networks. Prior to joining Palo Alto Networks, he worked at Forrester Research, where he was a vice president and principal analyst on the security and risk team. He's also previously served as a security consultant, penetration tester, and security architect.
