Zero-Trust: The Missing Piece to Mainframe Security

Presented by

Dr. Chase Cunningham, Principal Analyst, Forrester | Cynthia Overby, President, Key Resources, Inc.

About this talk

In this webinar, Key Resources, Inc. Co-founder and President, Cynthia Overby, will be joined by Dr. Chase Cunningham, Principal Analyst at Forrester. Together, they will explore the results from a Forrester Opportunity Snapshot: A Custom Study commissioned by Key Resources, Inc. to determine where organizations stand in their plans to implement a Zero-Trust framework on the mainframe. Weak mainframe security leads to consequences: data breaches, compliance fines, rampant excessive access, and insurmountable data ownership issues. Despite these risks, only 45 percent of security decision makers stated that mainframe security is an organizational priority. Join us as we discuss the disconnect between security and business and offer insights on how to build and enable a zero-trust strategy that encompasses the mainframe. Tune into this webinar to explore and get answers concerning: • Why a zero-trust architecture is the blueprint for an effective mainframe security strategy • Why IT and Security leaders are prioritizing investments in Zero Trust Frameworks and the challenges they face in prioritizing mainframe security • What it means to assess your mainframe zero-trust maturity and five practical steps you need to take to successfully implementing a zero-trust framework on the mainframe.
