Zero trust is an important security concept that is gaining traction in the business world. The basic idea behind zero trust is that no one should be automatically trusted, regardless of their position within an organization. This includes both internal employees and external partners. Instead, all users should be treated as potential threats and subjected to the same level of scrutiny.
There are several reasons why this approach is important. First, it helps to prevent data breaches by ensuring that all users are properly authenticated before they are given access to sensitive information. Second, it reduces the risk of insider threats by making it more difficult for malicious actors to move laterally within an organization. Finally, it makes it easier to comply with data privacy regulations such as General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
To properly adopt AR, organizations need to have a clear understanding of their security requirements. This is where the AREA Zero Trust infographic comes into play.
