Zero Trust continues to be the “catchphrase of the day.” At the last in-person RSA Conference, the number of vendors claiming to have Zero Trust solutions had increased by 50% over the prior year. RSA 2022 is right around the corner – and we expect to see even more “Zero Trust” solutions!

With nearly every cybersecurity company claiming to have a Zero Trust solution, this has caused significant confusion, and sometimes doubt, in the marketplace.  Join ISSA for an insightful discussion to cut through the noise and better understand:

  • Level setting on Zero Trust – what it is…and what it isn’t!
  • Key actionable steps to jumpstart your Zero Trust journey
  • Real-world examples of customer successes resulting from Zero Trust implementations
