Zero trust takes a different approach to cybersecurity: rather than focusing on perimeters defined by networks or physical premises, one shifts towards protecting users, assets and resources. Rather than implicitly trusting components that are nearby or on the same network, every element is authenticated. This lecture describes how this can be implemented and raises some broader topics related to trusting components in a system.

Key takeaway

Understand whether zero trust is useful for your organization or system. Reflect on which products and services you trust and why
