Traditional IT network security is based on perimeter security. Perimeter security makes it hard to obtain access to the network, but everyone inside the network is implicitly trusted. Once an attacker gains access, they have free reign over everything inside. With the advent of cloud computing, microservices, remote work, and distributed services this model is not sufficient anymore. As an alternate approach, zero trust security is an IT security model that requires strict identity verification for every person and device trying to access resources on a private network, regardless of whether they are sitting within or outside of the network perimeter.

Learning Outcomes:

  1. Understanding attack vectors for perimeter secured networks.
  2. Understanding why perimeter security is not sufficient anymore.
  3. Learn about the holistic concept of zero trust networks.
  4. Understand how the Zero trust networks approach helps to mitigate current attack vectors.
  5. Take a new and fresh view on network security.
