Personal data isn’t just about your name, phone number, credit cards and social security numbers. It’s also about your online habits, like where you are physically when you are online, what you do when you are online, and how you do certain things. All of that is recorded, filed and analyzed by various companies, including your employers. It can identify who you are and are as much a part of your digital identity as your user name and password.

The arena of Zero Trust is an unbridled circus. Conflicting best practices, classic overselling, and niche use cases abound making two things painfully clear: 1) organizational leadership is making Zero Trust a top priority, and 2) the folks tasked with implementing it have no idea where to start. Large enterprises benefit from larger budgets and staffing for widespread planning, the assessment of many different tools, and perhaps the time to get things right.

Zero trust is a heavily used buzzword. It inspires confidence when it’s used by cyber security and technology experts to imply a completely secure technology environment that protects people, devices and applications – all of the time.
