STEPS TO ADOPTING A ZERO-TRUST MODEL

Zero Trust Model means that by default, every organisation should put zero faith in their users and devices. This includes both internal employees and external parties like mobile phones or laptops when connected to the company’s network components. It also applies to any computer software running on these machines–even if you think yourself protected through security measures!

Foxpass is well known for its security solutions, but did you know that adopting its zero-trust model approach can actually benefit your company?

 A recent study conducted by Forrester Consulting found impressive results when compared to other approaches.

Zero Trust Model has become an essential cybersecurity practice for many companies. Yet, so few are aware of the pillars that make up this model. 

Here’s how you can adopt a zero-trust model in your company.

Define your goals:

The goal of this system is to prevent unauthorised access and make control decisions for data as granularly possible. This can be achieved by following NIST’s recommendations on how you want your organisation set up but also keeping in mind what specific needs will help accomplish these objectives.

Identify what should be protected:

Data is the lifeblood of any organisation, and it must be accessed from various entry points. Therefore, before assessing your zero-trust readiness, make sure you clearly articulate both what data will reside with which source as well as how this information gets used by them in order for there to be no vulnerabilities identified during an audit.

Assess zero-trust readiness:

Microsoft’s Zero Trust Maturity Assessment Quiz (add link) can help you identify your organisation’s key areas for security, like networking and data. It also assesses the maturity level of users on those topics to determine how ready they are in terms of risks involved with letting people outside their own network access it without protection first!

Build your architecture:

Zero-trust is the future of cybersecurity. It’s an approach that eliminates any unnecessary risk or vulnerability by never allowing data to leave your network, ensuring all connections are encrypted endpoints only (not necessarily in between), so no one else can sniff them along their journey, and giving you visibility into what really goes on inside other networks; as well internal problems with employees misusing permissions granted access where there should be none.

Monitor and maintain:

Implementing a zero-trust model is not just about security. It’s also crucial for compliance, productivity, and management of your employees as they continue to monitor the environment 24/7 against malicious attacks or cyber threats from both insides (or outside) their company walls – which can cause serious problems if left unchecked!

One response to “STEPS TO ADOPTING A ZERO-TRUST MODEL”

  1. Wow. This is such a huge issue now–but the name zero trust makes me realize how delicate protecting information is. Thanks for following my blog–that is true kindness. I’m going to return the favor because this is fascinating–and I am an admitted tech toad.
