Beyond The Hype: Zero Trust From An Attacker’s Perspective

Beyond The Hype: Zero Trust From An Attacker’s Perspective

There has been a lot of hype around Zero Trust over the past year and it seems all the focus in the industry has been about vendor specific implementations, one stop solutions, and products that ‘surprise surprise’ were Zero Trust even before it was cool. In this talk we instead focus on the principles of Zero Trust and in particular how they impact the threat landscape. We will try to cover how the advent of Zero Trust alters attacker behavior, incentivization, and identification of new targets. Where does the threat shift when Zero Trust principles are widely applied, and what are the new threats we need to be concerned with?
Bypass the hype and have a clear handle on what ZT improves as well as what it does not.
