Join Converge and Cisco for an in-depth discussion on zero trust and how you can secure your entire organization, elevate business performance, and accelerate your threat response, all while improving the user experience. Our speaker is a 20+ year IT industry veteran and former COO. He will delve into Cisco’s zero-trust offering and provide insight into the latest security threats.
After the security discussion, we’ll enjoy a winter-themed beer tasting led by a professional cicerone, or certified beer judge. We’ll learn the history and complexities of beer, along with a better idea of how to enjoy it. A limited number of beer-tasting kits containing four winter-style craft beers will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis, so register today!
Today’s work-from-anywhere culture demands a new approach to security. It can be particularly challenging for organizations that need to protect sensitive data and remote devices, so adopting cybersecurity practices that effectively protect the perimeter of a hybrid workforce is key.
A zero-trust strategy deploys a “never assume trust, always verify, and apply least-privileged access” policy for every connection request to every corporate resource. Always verifying trust before granting access across your applications, devices, and networks ensures that only those who should have access to the information do. But, what about the user experience?
The simple truth is that business moves too fast for security to get in the way. When implemented correctly, a zero-trust security framework frustrates the attacker, not the user. And, it accommodates the integrated ecosystem of suppliers, partners, and customers that businesses must protect to continue efficient operations.
