Pillars of zero trust security

Importance of monitoring an Zero Trust environment :

  • Zero Trust provide many tools to audit/alert the activities from each pillar
  • To improve the security aspects of zero trust we need to monitor those alerts in SIEM with advanced use cases
  • To identify the key threats/risk from each pillar we need to perform threat modelling exercise

Zero Trust for Insider Threats

Reduce the Risk of Insider Threats with Zero Trust

A zero trust approach helps isolate threats and insulate your most valuable resources. It can also help with dynamic enforcement of security controls and automating responses to the threats targeting your business. When you proactively manage these cybersecurity risks with a zero trust approach you can limit disruption to critical operations and strengthen resiliency.

Key metrics for success:

  1. Have you seen a decrease in the number of known exploits on critical systems in the last year? If so, what is the percentage of change?
  2. What percentage of your incident response are you able to automate, and what is your average time to contain an insider incident?
  3. What percentage of your privileged users are required to use privileged access management tools?

Zero Trust for Hybrid Cloud

Reimagine cloud security with a zero trust approach

Cloud misconfigurations were a leading cause of data breaches according to the 2020 Cost of a Data Breach Report, accounting for nearly 1 in 5 data breaches studied. Protecting the hybrid cloud with zero trust brings centralized visibility, context and management that consistently enforces security policies and helps your organization innovate quickly without delays.

Key metrics for success:

  1. What percentage of your sensitive data is encrypted or obfuscated across all locations, both on-premises and in the cloud?
  2. How many security incidents have you had after launching or modifying an application in your cloud environment?
  3. What percentage of business units review job roles and entitlements more than once per year?

Zero Trust for Remote Workforce

Enable your anywhere workforce with everywhere security

A zero trust approach can help organizations empower their workforce by correlating security information across all security domains to quickly enforce conditional access based on a model of least privilege. This can help improve the user experience by reducing the barriers to access resources without sacrificing security

Key metrics for success:

  1. What percentage of employees are adopting more than one form of authentication across all channels?
  2. What percentage of devices and access points are being monitored and managed for security?
  3. What percentage of applications have been migrated from a VPN-based remote access to ZTNA-based access?

Zero Trust for Customer Data

Protecting personal data is essential for building brand trust

A zero trust approach can help organizations protect customer privacy with access controls that are based on least privilege, giving access to only those with a legitimate need and for the agreed upon purpose.

Key metrics for success:

  1. How quickly can you respond to and address customer requests for what personal data you keep and how you use or intend to use it?
  2. What percentage of personal data have you discovered and classified? And how frequently are you conducting this assessment? (i.e. Do you know where your data resides, who it belongs to, who has access, and how it’s being used?)
  3. What percentage of security incidents required a customer breach notification?
