00:28 — Cyber attackers are becoming increasingly sophisticated in their efforts to breach defenses. They are constantly developing new techniques and tactics to evade detection.
00:55 — A significant cyber attack trend is insider threats, which can come from employees, contractors, or even partners. Some employees may intentionally steal data, others may unwittingly download malware or fall victim to phishing attacks.
01:44 — So, what can companies do to defend themselves against these evolving threats? Frank’s mind goes to zero trust. Zero trust is a security framework that assumes that all network traffic, both internal and external, is potentially malicious.
02:18 — Zero trust ensures that every user and device attempting to access sensitive data is authenticated and authorized, regardless of their location or credentials. Zero trust provides granular control over access to sensitive data, which makes it harder for cyber attackers to find and exploit vulnerabilities.
03:05 — Lastly, zero trust enables us to detect and respond to threats in real time. By using advanced analytics and threat intelligence, organizations can quickly identify and respond to suspicious behavior, even if it’s coming from within.
03:36 — Cyber attackers are evolving and organizations must evolve their defensive strategies to keep up with them. Zero trust can be a strong defense to help defend against these and other evolving cyber threats.
