Never Trust, Always Verify: Demystifying Zero Trust …

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

The point of Zero Trust is not to make networks, clouds, or endpoints more trusted; it’s to eliminate the concept of trust from digital systems altogether.

Standard security models operate on the assumption that everything on the inside of an organization’s network can be trusted, but that’s an outdated notion. With attackers becoming more sophisticated about insider threats, new security practices must be taken to stop them from spreading once inside networks.

Enter Zero Trust, which is a cybersecurity strategy that addresses the shortcomings of these failing approaches by removing the assumption of trust altogether. Though much mythology surrounds the term, it’s crucial to understand the point of Zero Trust is not to make networks, clouds, or endpoints more trusted; it’s to eliminate the concept of trust from digital systems altogether.

Simply put, the “trust” level is zero.

Understanding What Zero Trust Is and Isn’t
Zero Trust is not only a general best practice but also a strategic security initiative. Breaches often have been tied to internal causes, either malicious or accidental, which means sensitive business and customer data must be protected by giving users the least amount of access needed for them to do their jobs.

Adopting a Zero Trust architecture defines the business use of segmentation and provides a methodology for building a segmented network. Zero Trust architecture is like tailoring a suit. Think about how custom clothing is made — the designer first measures you, then creates a pattern and next, after those two steps are complete, the sewing begins. Zero Trust follows a similar process. The only way to architect an effective and secure network is by first understanding what needs to be protected and how those systems work.

Zero Trust is a powerful prevention strategy when implemented across the entire enterprise — from the network to the endpoint and to the cloud. With a comprehensive approach, Zero Trust becomes a business enabler. Here are the methodologies I recommend following when implementing a Zero Trust network architecture to simplify protection of your sensitive data and critical assets.

Zero Trust Methodologies
Minimize Risk
Protect critical assets by limiting access by role and a “need-to-know” basis. It’s crucial to inspect all traffic for malicious content and unauthorized activity, both inside and outside your network, and also ensure all data and resources are accessed securely based on user and location. You must identify the traffic and data flow that maps to your business flows, and then have the visibility into the application, the user, and the flows.

Understanding who the users are, what applications they’re using, and the appropriate connection method is the only way to determine and enforce policy that ensures secure access to your data. Additionally, it’s important to adopt a least-privileged access strategy and strictly enforce access control. By doing this, businesses can significantly reduce available pathways for attackers and malware, and prevent attackers from exploiting vulnerabilities hidden in trusted applications.

Simplify Operations
Security teams can automate and streamline Zero Trust policy management, from creation and administration to deployment and maintenance. Simplify deployment and enforcement with a next-generation firewall, architected around User-ID and App-ID. Security teams must be able to define things with higher fidelity to keep their companies secure. One of the key steps to a Zero Trust network is to ensure that teams write their policy rules on the segmentation gateway based on the expected behavior of the data, the user, or applications that interact with that data. This is what next-generation firewalls, serving as a segmentation gateway in a Zero Trust environment, allows you to do.

Accelerate Execution
Another core tenet of Zero Trust is to log and inspect all internal and external traffic for malicious activity and areas of improvement. To better monitor environments, evaluate where you may already have security analytics to make the most of the tools you already own. It’s also important to reduce time to deploy, manage, and integrate across your enterprise — on-premises, within the cloud, and across partner ecosystems. Security teams should also effectively use limited resources by minimizing incident volume and reducing response and remediation time for critical incidents, which will also simplify compliance and auditing.

With a Zero Trust approach, businesses can protect what matters — their data, assets, applications, and services.

Never choose your own dating profile picture if you want to find romance, say scientists

Daters are being warned not to choose their own profile picture if they want to find romance online. New research has found that strangers are far better at picking the most flattering images to give a more favourable first impression to prospective suitors. The findings appear to contradict previous research which showed that people tend to portray themselves more favorably than others. “Our findings suggest that people make poor choices when selecting flattering images of themselves for online profile pictures, which affects other people’s perception of them,” said Dr David White, lead author from the University of New South Wales in Sydney.

Parents of day care kids may never know extent of abuse

Parents at a Bear day care where a teacher was caught on video inappropriately touching three students may never find out if their children also were victims.

Anthony Rodriguez, a teacher there, was arrested in 2015. Parents whose children were not identified as victims in videotapes that alerted authorities to Rodriguez never learned of the abuse until they read about the 21-year-old’s guilty plea and sentencing in The News Journal this week. That lag, they say, robbed them of the chance to determine if anything happened to their children.

“I just want to make sure I do what I need to do as a parent, but now they took that away from me,” said Nicole Rittenhouse, a mother who withdrew her 6-year-old son from Kidz Ink II’s after-school program this week.

Bride Who Was Told She Would Never Walk Again Dances At Her Wedding

In 2008, Jaquie Goncher of Marietta, Georgia was paralyzed from the neck down after she dove into a friend’s pool and broke her neck.

Initially, Goncher’s surgeon told her the chances of her walking again were “too small to put a percentage on” ― but the grim prognosis didn’t deter her. 

A year before her May 22 wedding in Atlanta, Georgia, she made it her goal to stand on the big day without the use of her wheelchair. And when the date came, she surprised guests by not only walking down the aisle, but also standing most of the day and even dancing at the reception.

5 Words You Should Never Say To Your Grandchild

There are people who have a talent for sticking their foot in their mouth and then there are people who just don’t care what they say. Words are either gifts or weapons and I strive to keep what comes out of my mouth to be a gift. However, it’s impossible to live as long as I have and not occasionally say something I regret. I’m guessing that most of us do. The only person I know who had complete control over what she said was my Grandma Layne. She lived to be 89 and not once did I ever hear her say anything bad about anyone.
