DIR and Gartner Security Webinar: 7 Effective Steps for Implementing Zero Trust Network Access

Monday Oct 23, 2023
11:00am - 12:00pm CDT


Zero trust is a strategic approach that replaces implicit trust with continuously assessed explicit trust. It is based on identity and context that is supported by security infrastructure that adapts to an organization’s risk appetite to improve the security maturity. It can be confusing when used without context, and often abused in vendor marketing to imply improved security. Security and risk management leaders pursuing a zero-trust strategy must focus on key projects to demonstrate value quickly by targeting the highest risks in their environment first. This webinar will highlight 7 effective steps for implementing zero trust network access.

The presenter of this session is Glenn Schoonover with Gartner’s Security and Risk Management Leadership Partner team. His Cybersecurity experience spans a variety of sectors.
