Check out the latest happenings in the world of IT from our Locknet® experts. In this issue, we highlight some topics your organization should be aware of to minimize risks. Specifically, mitigating insider threats to your security and the risks of hanging on to legacy data.
Trust is often seen as the groundwork that must be laid for businesses to be successful; yet in the cybersecurity space, too much trust can be problematic. Enter Zero Trust Security. It's an approach to protecting your business that might just thwart an attack on your network, regardless of where exactly it comes from. So what is Zero Trust Security? And how can zero trust shield your organization from a breach, hack, or other cybersecurity incidents?
The Zero Trust model of security is a strategy that recognizes threats to your network and business exist both within and outside of your organization. From that standpoint, the security model commands verification from multiple sources before granting access to your organization's data or network. It means the system requires proof that a device or user is legitimate and trusted whether they are inside or outside of a network. Gone is implicit trust. In its place is a safer and dependable approach to cybersecurity.
Zero Trust Security involves taking a hard look at the organization's data, assets, applications, and services. From there, the organization develops access policies that control user access to the applications and data essential to conducting their workplace duties. Monitoring traffic and activity is vital, as it allows your organization to pinpoint and react quickly to any suspicious activity.
There are multiple reasons why companies and organizations might wish to consider a Zero Trust model of security.
There's no time like the present to up your cybersecurity efforts. The experts at Locknet® Managed IT are here to help put your Zero Trust Security model into place, to ensure your organization has the best defense against attack from both inside and outside your network.
