    Session Overview

    Session Title: Zero Trust: Getting Least Privilege Right, Finally

    Session Leader: Brian Chappell, Chief Security Strategist – BeyondTrust

    Session Synopsis:

    Zero Trust has become one of these buzz words. But what is actually behind? Decrypt the concept with Brian Chappell, Chief Security Strategist at BeyondTrust, and leave this session with practical takeaways and solid answers.

    The more the traditional perimeter blurs or dissolves, the more zero trust comes into focus. At its core, zero trust aspires to eliminate persistent trust, and enforce continuous authentication, least privilege, and microsegmentation. This approach reduces the threat surface and also minimizes the threat windows during which attackers can inflict damage, helping to protect against everything from simple malware to advanced persistent threats.

    The reality is, for most organizations, achieving a 100% zero-trust state is a pipe dream. However, any implementation of zero trust controls should substantively help minimize your attack surface and cyber risk. Understanding your barriers to zero trust will also help you forge the best path to optimally securing your environment, including upgrading from legacy applications and architectures to ones that support zero trust.

    In the session, our session leader will explore on:

    • What is behind the concept of Zero Trust
    • The goals of Zero Trust
    • Roadblocks to Zero Trust (legacy architectures and technologies)
    • How Privileged Access Management aligns with and enables Zero Trust

    If you’re ready to cut through zero trust myths and clearly grasp what it will take for you to improve zero trust security controls, and how your organization stands to benefit, this event is for you!
