Despite the evolution of zero-trust security over the past 10 years, it is still unclear what it is and how it can be implemented. Added to this, vendors and companies overuse the word so much that the debacle on what it is and how it should be executed is still shrouded in myths.
In our first podcast, Augustin Kurian, Editor in Chief of The Cyber Express catches up with Nick Savvides from Forcepoint for a casual chat and discusses what Zero Trust means for businesses and why is it important that decision-makers understand the concept and its requirements.
For the uninitiated, Nick Savvides is the senior director of strategic accounts for the Asia Pacific at Forcepoint. In this role, he is responsible for growing the company’s strategic business with its key customers in the region. This involves taking the lead to solve customers’ most complex security issues while accelerating the adoption of human-centric security systems to support their business growth and digital transformation. In addition, Savvides is responsible for providing thought leadership and over-the-horizon guidance to CISOs, industry, and analysts.
According to Nick, many organizations have already started implementing one or more of the components of zero trust. This is good news as it allows them to continue to move forward in their efforts to secure their organizations.
He also talks in-depth about several concepts of cybersecurity, from managing access control in the post-COVID era to API security being a blind spot for companies and industries, alike.
