There are many starting points on the path to Zero Trust. However, all roads still lead to identity, and access controls are the lowest-hanging fruit. Hackers don’t hack in anymore — they log in using weak, default, stolen or otherwise compromised credentials. Indeed, Forrester Research estimates that 80 percent of today’s breaches involve privileged access abuse — that is, user accounts that have administrative access to critical systems in the organization. So, until organizations start implementing identity-centric security measures, privileged account compromise attacks will continue to provide a perfect camouflage for data breaches.
Zero Trust Privilege For Dummies consists of five areas that explore: the basics of Zero Trust and the emergence of Zero Trust Privilege – what it is, why it’s needed and its benefits; real-world use cases for Zero Trust Privilege in organizations of all sizes and industries; how to assess your organization’s Zero Trust Privilege maturity level; how to get started with Zero Trust Privilege; and the myths and realities of Zero Trust.
