Trust No One: Exploring Zero-Trust Networks
Show Notes Chapter Markers

Zero-trust is the hot term in network security in 2021.  But one reason it's so highly sought out is that many don't know exactly what it means. We called on Fortinet Senior Director of Product Marketing Peter Newton to shed some light on the subject. Peter discusses what makes a zero-trust network philosophy, what steps a company should take to plan for the shift, and what tools can make it easier. Plus, we talk about how the right zero-trust setup makes remote work both easier and more secure simultaneously.

In the news, we cover some REvil drama, a new finger pointing at Russia, and states' troubles filling cybersecurity jobs.
