Zero Trust in Healthcare: The Cyber Immune System Booster

Presented by

Soo Yi Youn – Director Cyber Security Operations, Highmark

About this talk

Zero Trust is a concept and an outcome born from examining your organization’s gaps in security and risk posture and identifying where to apply controls that enforce least privilege and the greatest levels of visibility and segregation. As a security leader in healthcare, I examined Zero Trust through the lens of how we’ve managed the COVID19 pandemic and identified parallels between Zero Trust and modern disease management. We take medication, wear masks and wash our hands, and use other controls like vaccines to prevent the spread of a virus. That is actually a common use case of Zero Trust security – designing controls to prevent an unauthorized asset/resource & minimizing impact from an intruder or infection by preventing lateral movement. Humanity will always be battling disease, just like organizations will always have threat actors and adversaries attempting to breach controls. In this presentation, we’ll use concepts from disease management to explain Zero Trust security, and the practical business outcomes, security improvements and metrics you need to boost your own organization’s cyber immune system.
