In the advent of Cloud, security leaders around the world are battling to address gaping vulnerabilities that traditional perimeter based security strategies fail to address, even as critical data and applications quickly spread out over growing sprawl of endpoints and third-party cloud services.

As organisations seek to protect their ever expanding network of endpoints and cloud estates, recent cyber attacks such as the Solarwinds saga bring to light how vulnerable organisations are to insider threats and lateral network movement to the detriment of even the most well defended government organisations.

As such, organisations are beginning to adopt a Zero-Trust Network Architecture approach in a bid to better secure their users, both employees and third-party partners, while enabling frictionless access to business applications and essential data.

This roundtable discussion will tap the views of security practitioners to:

  • Unpack key security protocols, toolkits and best practices (e.g. NIST 800-53r4, NIST SP 800-207, etc.) to implement a Zero-Trust approach for our cloud-first landscape, as well as in managing third party risks.
  • Identify gaps in traditional perimeter based security practices to protect cloud estates and demystify what the latest cloud security tools and their buzzwords – e.g. Secure Access Service Edge (SASE), Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) and Secure Web Gateways (SWGs) can actually do for your organisation
  • Discuss common challenges and blind spots to be addressed by tech leaders in building their zero trust cloud security architecture
