Getting Started on Your Zero Trust Journey

Zero Trust doesn't have to be difficult. In fact, if done properly, enterprises can ease into its pillars over time, fairly simply. Identifying the question of "where do I begin" can be seen as the leading pain point when creating your zero trust strategy. In this session, Frank will take you through the first steps of a Zero Trust journey including grouding your knowledge in the core concepts of zero trust, deciding where to begin, determining the key considerations to recognize, and exploring how to approach each phase of deployment.
