    Hi Folks - Thanks everyone who was able to join the January 26 working session, Workstream 9: Architecture, Implementation, and Maturity Model.
    Our current effort is focused on the in-progress whitepaper : Communicating the Business Value of Zero Trust. 

    • intros
    • Discussion about the importance of being able to express the business value of Zero Trust - not just to gain support for a Zero Trust initiative, but also to maintain and grow support throughout the multi-year journey
    • Starting points - orgs may start with Identity or Data because they are relatively good at it, or because the are relatively bad at it
    • Cost savings - they are realized as part of ZT projects, but not a primary driver.
    • other points
    • Risk reduction is definitely a value driver
    • ZT can be a competitive differentiator for enterprises, if done properly
