Evolving to a zero trust architecture can be overwhelming for organizations, leaving many unsure of where they should even start. Cloudflare Chief Security Officer Joe Sullivan urges CISOs to break the journey into bite-sized chunks that can be easily digested.
In a video interview with Information Security Media Group at RSA Conference 2022, Sullivan also discusses:
- How zero trust can secure users and applications more effectively;
- How Cloudflare and its top customers are approaching zero trust;
- What the Russia-Ukraine war means for CISOs around the globe.

At Facebook, Sullivan assembled a security team to address requests from law enforcement agencies globally and fight various types of cybercrime within the social network. After law school, Sullivan spent the first eight years of his career in the Department of Justice, where he represented the government in the landmark United States v. Elcom Ltd. case, the first U.S. prosecution under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. He also worked on multiple cybercrime cases including digital evidence aspects of the 9/11 investigation, economic espionage and child predator cases.
