Conclusion: A zero trust posture is critical as the global workforce has transitioned to remote work at scale brought about by COVID-19. The need to evolve from perimeter-based cyber security measures emphasises the crucial role of least privilege in Cloud environment access and micro-segmentation in digital networks.

The slow adoption of zero trust among enterprises is in part due to the difficulty in implementing key technologies and the associated security skills and practices. It is also because security teams do not engage with the C-suite to explain and sell the importance of zero trust for the modern workplace.

In this paper, IBRS provides a high-level overview of zero trust aimed at educating executive stakeholders to the needs, benefits and challenges. Ensuring senior business stakeholders understand the drivers for zero trust is essential, as the model is more than just technology – it demands a change in the mindset of how to approach cyber risk.
