Zero Trust has evolved to be so much more than a way of managing your brand’s cybersecurity. It’s influenced a certain way of thinking across 92% of consumers. (Source: Daon). Understanding the public’s perception of cybersecurity and current network risks can help your business adopt a more preventative, consumer-forward approach to management – giving your customers a better overall experience and the peace of mind they need to invest confidently.
Below, we’re exploring how Zero Trust concepts have established themselves in the rhythms of modern-day consumerism and how your brand can leverage this change to be even more intuitive and customer-forward.
Will cybersecurity threats continue to outpace current tech?
This question is one that business owners have been wanting to answer for years. 92% of consumers do believe that this will continue (Source: Daon) and 91% are willing to take additional action to protect themselves and their accounts.
If you’ve been wondering if multi-FA and other implications of an intact Zero Trust program are worth the investment to your consumer base, we believe that this quantitative data shows just how far most are willing to take their data security and integrity.
Large-scale enterprise breaches and concerns only serve to further this belief, and there’s been plenty to reference in 2022 – such as the Microsoft Data Breach and the Crypto.com crypto theft.
How can I implement Zero Trust concepts in my data security strategy?
Zero Trust isn’t a software or a package of tools you can install for your network’s security. Instead, the concepts require a strategic hand to determine the best overall application and timeline for implementation across your organization.
Below are a few ways you can implement Zero Trust concepts into your organization’s security strategy:
- Map your data flows. This is a critical part of adopting a Zero Trust process in your organization, and it helps you to make a much more effective strategy – showing where your current areas of need are.
- Make room for multi-level authentication. Multiple points of authentication help to establish true integrity across your network, minimizing the risk of user account compromisation.
- Plan sustainably and involve your team. Your cybersecurity strategy is only as strong as its adaptation across your organization. Involving your team members in your planning and execution process ensures that all of your bases are covered, and that they have a complete understanding of what’s coming to keep your network secure.
