Some organizations have been embracing the "zero trust" security model, and others are still trying to decide what it means and whether it makes sense for them to try it. With the sudden need for more flexibility, scalability and remote access, many of these enterprises have found themselves in unfamiliar territory without a map.

In this session, we'll talk about how adopting this security "design pattern" can actually help address current needs, and why it makes sense to build in zero trust to deal with future challenges beyond attacks.
