Episode 2: Unpacking Zero Trust in Higher Education

Presented by

Illumio Host: Raghu Nandakumara and Guest Speaker: George Finney

About this talk

In this episode, host Raghu Nandakumara chats with George Finney, best-selling author and Chief Security Officer at Southern Methodist University, about his experiences with Zero Trust in higher education, the cultural elements of cybersecurity, his new book “Project Zero Trust” and why some Zero Trust projects fail.  -------- “That understanding fundamentally of trust is something we don't necessarily talk about a lot in organizations. When you get into Zero Trust, the real trick is how do I spot the trusts? When I look at a computer, router, firewall, server config — what's the trust? How do I go through and get rid of them? That's what Zero Trust is about. It's not about not trusting people. It's about finding those trusts in our digital systems and getting rid of them.” - George Finney -------- Sponsor Assume breach, minimize impact, increase resilience ROI, and save millions in downtime costs — with Illumio, the Zero Trust Segmentation company.  Learn more at illumio.com/ -------- Links Connect with George on LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/georgefinney/ Check out George's best-selling book "Project Zero Trust": https://www.amazon.com/dp/1119884845/ref=tsm_1_fb_lk Listen on Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/episode/1X9EuTtiDwLKcXRzVQqBOG?si=109069904c6e410a Listen on Apple Podcasts: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/unpacking-zero-trust-in-higher-education-with-george/id1667939687?i=1000599724718 Episode page: https://www.illumio.com/podcast/unpacking-zero-trust-in-higher-education
