The cybersecurity industry is abuzz with the term "Zero Trust.” The concept, however, is amorphous, and can become an empty buzzword instead of a reference to a substantive approach to security. It makes sense, then to explore the fundamentals about Zero Trust. Access the resources below to better understand the term from multiple perspectives, and to identify common themes that emerge from the major frameworks and initiatives around Zero Trust.
Zero Trust Overview
Zero Trust is the term for an evolving set of cybersecurity paradigms that move defenses from static, network-based perimeters to focus on users, assets, and resources. A Zero Trust architecture uses Zero Trust Principles to plan industrial and enterprise infrastructure and workflows. Access NIST’s special publication, NIST 800-207 to attain guidelines set by NIST around Zero Trust architecture.
