    Synopsis and overview of the session

    The cloud and remote work have removed traditional security boundaries. As a CISO, the responsibility rests squarely on your shoulders to prevent compromise, lateral movement of attacks, and data loss.

    A zero trust approach to your overall security, where you challenge everything and trust nothing, is your most powerful secret weapon. In this discussion, you’ll have the opportunity to exchange views and strategies on adapting to digital transformation while embracing the latest technologies and trends.

    Focus Network in partnership with Zscaler invite you and other leading IT Security executives to share your experiences and insights on implementing a zero trust approach to security, where we will delve deeper into:

    • Ways of gaining buy-in for zero trust enterprise-wide
    • How zero trust can impact your remote architecture’s attack surface
    • How zero trust can mitigate VPN traffic overwhelm in a remote work environment
    • How do you integrate zero trust into your digital enterprise’s DNA
    • How do you justify the imperative to implement zero trust to board members
    • What specific actions you need to take to engage users and get them to adopt a zero trust mindset
