Over the course of three days, ISMG and SecureAuth teamed up for a series of virtual roundtable discussions on the future of identity security. Bil Harmer of SecureAuth reflects on these discussions and how they inform his view of the factors influencing both the present and future of identity.
The latest edition of the ISMG Security Report analyzes the rising costs of ransomware attacks and the latest victims. Also featured: An assessment of Australia's new contact-tracing app designed to help battle the spread of COVID-19, and a discussion of applying the "zero trust" model to the remote workforce.
Zero Trust security throws away the idea that we should have a "trusted" internal network and an "untrusted" external network.
