For cybersecurity professionals, it is a huge challenge to separate the “good guys” from the “villains”. In the past, most cyberattacks could simply be traced to external cybercriminals, cyberterrorists, or rogue nation-states. But not anymore.
Threats from within organizations – also known as “insider threats” – are increasing and cybersecurity practitioners are feeling the pain.
Traditional perimeter defences are not designed to prevent these attacks. They also struggle to keep external attackers out. Clever hackers continuously find ways in and “weaponize” their trusted status inside the network to compromise sensitive assets and orchestrate larger attacks.
And an increasing number of enterprise resources – applications, devices, data, and even people – now live outside the perimeter. It’s difficult to protect these assets with legacy approaches, much less fortify the perimeter to keep attackers out completely.
How can you protect your organization in this landscape?
The answer: Adopt a zero trust approach to cybersecurity.
Of course, this is easier said than done. That’s why Cynet has created a free eBook called “Implementing zero trust: Key considerations before you begin” for you. The guide explains how your organization can design a zero trust implementation strategy, select an appropriate methodology, assemble the right tools, and execute the implementation plan for successful zero trust adoption.
