Zero Trust is built with multiple defenses working together to make a strong and secure network. Join Ingram Micro representatives Jerry Diedrichs and Michael Wier to learn about the Zero Trust Model and the strategies that can help transform your security structure during the digital transformation. 

Join us to gain insight into these key takeaways:

  • Methodology

    • Gain information on integrated end-to-end strategies and security protocols for the business.

  • Zero Trust SASE Strategies

    • Gain insight into the Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) framework providing safeguarded and rapid solutions that meet the challenges associated with your business's digital transformation.

  • Zero Trust and CMMC
    • Gain an understanding of how to use Zero Trust to limit access to Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) and limit data loss in line with CMMC regulations. 

  • NIST 800-207

    • Biden administration issued an executive order that mandated every US Federal Agency adhere to the NIST 800-207. The mandate was a drive towards implementing the Zero Trust model and a consequence of the nation's increasing number of high-profile security breaches. As a result, this is seen as the standard model for Zero Trust.

  • The Importance of Implementation 

    • A Zero Trust model is the precautionary measures taken to maintain strict access control by trusting actions or individuals already inside the network perimeter. Every action taken is evaluated for need and risk. Always assume something can be a threat until verified.
