Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) is one of the biggest concepts in cybersecurity, and for good reason – it’s one of the most secure and reliable ways to protect critical assets, like systems, networks, applications, and data, from bad actors or inappropriate user access.
Accomplishing Zero Trust takes more than just applying complex password requirements to login credentials. It entails restricting and controlling the amount of access someone has to a system, authentication methods that can verify a user’s identity before they access a critical asset (like a system or database), and putting workflows in place to make sure any access that is no longer needed has been taken away.
Use this Zero Trust checklist as a how-to guide for how to level up your cybersecurity approach. In this checklist, you will:
- Evaluate your current cybersecurity strategy to see if it fits a Zero Trust framework
- Identify areas that need improvement
- Get helpful and actionable advice on how to start implementing Zero Trust principles into your cybersecurity strategy
