Intro

Eight years after former Forrester analyst John Kindervag introduced the Zero Trust model, the concept has hit the mainstream. As current Forrester analyst Chase Cunningham says, 85% of his calls involve zero trust. With the amount of interest in the concept, many organizations are rushing to understand how to implement the zero-trust model. In this guide, we’ll look at the first step to implementing zero trust: asset management.

If I have 20 calls, 17 are about Zero Trust. CISOs, CIOs and CEOs are all interested, and companies of various sizes are interested. And in three years, I think Zero Trust will be cited as one of the big-time frameworks in cyber security. Period.
