Zero Trust has become an extremely popular reference for security best practices. Vendor marketing and other misleading data has unfortunately caused confusion about what Zero Trust is and how to use it properly. This misunderstanding of Zero Trust can lead to a false sense of security.

This course will review the history of many popular terms for security best practices as well as how the industry developed the term Zero Trust. We will review Zero Trust Architecture and Framework in details with enterprise use cases. Topics will include network, endpoint and cloud security concepts. We will also discuss misconceptions, such as how Zero Trust best practices can t be achieved by simply acquiring a technology such as a Firewall, Identity Management solution or Network Access Control offering. Expect many real-world examples, demos and definitions of topics that you can relate to as well as evaluate with open source or enterprise technology.

The training course flow will be a mix of lectures & classroom discussions so that participants can have a detailed understanding of various components of cybersecurity technologies.

Training will be delivered by an experienced trainer with 25+ years of career experience imparting education and training services both locally and internationally and have served international enterprise technology vendors including IBM, Fujitsu, and ICL.

Our instructor holds various industry professional certifications in the space of enterprise servers and storage technologies, Information Security, Enterprise Architecture, Blockchain, ITIL, Cloud, Virtualization, Green IT, and a co-author of 10 IBM Redbooks and have designed and developed 70 plus courses based on storage, information security, cybersecurity, enterprise architecture, Blockchain, Open Banking Framework and digital technologies stacks.
