About August’s Event

Presentation by: Branden Edwards, Infosec Systems Engineer at CompuNet, Inc

In this informative session, we will delve into the concept of Zero Trust, exploring its key principles, architectural pillars, and adoption considerations. We will examine the perspectives of leading organizations such as NIST, Forrester, Microsoft, and the National Cyber Security Centre UK on Zero Trust.

The session will cover essential topics, including the related acronyms, the architectural pillars encompassing identity, devices, network, and application data, and high-level architecture diagrams. We will also explore the relationships between these pillars and common use cases, providing sample diagrams to illustrate their implementation. Finally, we will address key considerations for adopting Zero Trust and guide you on where to begin your own Zero Trust journey. Join us to gain valuable insights into this transformative security approach.

Branden Edwards is an experienced Cybersecurity Engineer with 12+ years across multiple industries.
