  • Basic IT hygiene, designed around asset management, zero-trust architecture and advanced threat detection.
  • Regular, mandatory security training for all employees because far too many hacks occur because of social engineering.

Ultimately, moving to a zero- trust model can avoid many of the issues we have now.
  • Software and hardware management and delivery ubiquity. For example, we need to deliver on a Software Bill of Materials, signing software to validate the source, and implementing software security technologies such that it’s not possible to modify, attack, or repurpose.
