2101759 - Zero Trust Is The Only Security Strategy

Oct 10, 2022 4:00pm ‐ Oct 10, 2022 5:00pm


Zero trust isn’t a product or a tool, it’s a cybersecurity strategy for helping focus your efforts to get the most out of the limited resources available. Higher education is one of those industries that has traditionally struggled with very limited resources, and the presenter will tell the behind-the-scene story of SMU's path to zero trust, starting from the network to identity, application security, and integrating this approach in the school's security operations center. This effort required a diverse group of partnerships, both inside IT as well as outside with Legal, Risk and HR. He will share his lessons learned from the decade-long journey and detail some of the mistakes that were made along the way.

Learning Objectives:
  • Understand how to apply the zero trust design methodology created by John Kindervag.
  • Know where the pitfalls with zero trust are and how to overcome them.
  • Be able to recruit the right stakeholders into your zero trust journey and how to get the board onboard.
