Part 6 of this video series based on a recent Thales TCT webinar discusses Zero Trust.

Implementing a zero trust approach to data security is one of the best ways for agencies to protect their data. Agencies must act under the assumption that their networks have already been compromised. A good plan starts with taking a data-centric approach to security. This means focusing on what needs to be protected—the files containing sensitive information—and applying the appropriate form of protection no matter where the data happens to reside. To be effective, this must happen automatically; sensitive information should be identified as soon as it enters an organization’s IT ecosystem and should be secured with policy-based protection that lasts throughout the data lifecycle.
