In this week’s FRIDAY FIELD NOTES, Ray discusses the Zero Trust security model, a framework that’s revolutionizing how organizations protect their critical systems and data. Diving into the depths of cybersecurity, we clear up common myths and misinterpretations surrounding Zero Trust, illuminating its role as not just a defensive strategy but a comprehensive approach to modern threats.

Zero Trust operates on the principle of “never trust, always verify,” but what does this mean in practice? Zero Trust doesn’t just look outward; it recognizes that threats also come from the inside. By assuming that a breach is not just possible, but has already happened, Zero Trust strategies are uniquely positioned to mitigate damage by insiders, whether malicious or accidental.
