About this talk

Data breaches continue to rise yearly; the US reported 1800 breaches in 2022. Many enterprises are turning to Zero Trust to combat these risks to protect their organization from the never-ending barrage of attacks, ransomware, phishing, or password theft. During this conversation, we will discuss why Zero Trust is important and what it will take for companies to make Zero Trust actionable.   Panelists: Nicole Perlroth is an award-winning cybersecurity journalist for the New York Times, where her work has been optioned for both film and television.
