ESG today released new research that found, despite the challenges posed by the pandemic, most organizations have either pressed forward as planned or accelerated their zero-trust initiatives.

Zero-trust concepts have never been more applicable than they are today. With people, devices, and applications all just as likely to be outside the corporate perimeter than inside, location has become meaningless in assessing trust and determining risk posture.

Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG), a leading integrated technology analysis, research, and strategy firm, today released new research that found, despite the challenges posed by the pandemic, most organizations have either pressed forward as planned or accelerated their zero-trust initiatives. Zero trust strategies assume the network is compromised and brokers resource-specific access in isolation from network access through a least-privileged approach supported by continuous authentication, authorization, and risk evaluation for every request. These initiatives have seen increased interest over the last few years as enterprise architectures have become more distributed. The new ESG study—which surveyed 421 security and IT professionals responsible for driving zero-trust security strategies and evaluating, purchasing, and managing related security technology products and services—found that three-quarters of organizations are allocating net-new budget for zero-trust programs and the vast majority plan to increase spending over the next 12-18 months.

While interest and budget for zero trust are robust, there remains some level of confusion in the market as to what the term means, where to start, and what technologies are required to support these initiatives. There does appear to be growing understanding among customers that zero trust should be viewed as a strategic approach. However, most organizations continue to take a technology-centric view.

Among the study’s key findings:

  • Most organizations (51%) view zero trust as an avenue towards overall cybersecurity program modernization, updating traditional security processes and procedures to better align with today’s distributed enterprise reality.
  • More than half (53%) of organizations began their zero-trust journey with a specific use case, then broadened that strategy over time.
  • 40% of organizations say they have either paused or abandoned a zero-trust project they had previously started—often due to organizational and personnel issues.
  • Organizations that have yet to implement zero trust do maintain some negative perceptions of the initiative, especially around complexity, cost, and user experience.
  • Yet organizations that have implemented zero trust report a variety of benefits ranging from reduced cybersecurity incidents and data breaches to greater agility and increased employee productivity.

“Zero-trust concepts have never been more applicable than they are today. With people, devices, and applications all just as likely to be outside the corporate perimeter than inside, location has become meaningless in assessing trust and determining risk posture,” said John Grady, Senior Analyst at ESG. “ESG’s research shows that organizations are seeing demonstrable benefits from implementing zero-trust strategies across both security and business outcomes. That said, this remains a multi-year journey for most, requiring both short-term, use-case-focused prioritization, and longer-term, strategic planning and executive support.”

Cyber Hygiene, Cyber Humans & Cyber Automation

The Cyber Security Hub ran the Global Summit where lessons learned from the past 12-14 months were shared by every single presenter over the course of three days. There were three prevalent themes- hygiene, humans and automation. On hygiene- time and time again, presenters suggested that it doesn’t matter what you do, it doesn’t matter what you implement and it doesn’t matter how much you know if your hygiene isn’t up to snuff. The other two points dovetail- you can better take care of your humans and avoid burnout if you automate the simple stuff.

Episode Overview:

Cyber Security Consultant for F-Secure, Jason Johnson joins TF7 Radio Host George Rettas to break down the use of Artificial Intelligence in the Cyber Security Industry. Johnson unpacks the practical real world applications of AI being used in the security tools right now, and explains what the risks are in using AI in your security stack. Johnson talks about how organizations can manage and mitigate AI risks, what separates valuable AI products through all the buzz words being tossed around, and even how threat actors are using AI to automate their attacks. All this and much more on Episode #181 of Task Force 7 Radio. Does AI pose a threat to job security, in cybersecurity or in other sectors? How can people get started learning about AI?
