Compliance, Zero trust

The Magician Hat – SCW #53

This week, we welcome Zulfikar Ramzan, Ph.D., Chief Digital Officer at RSA Security, to talk about how Zero Trust Intersects XDR in Today’s Digital Era! In the second segment, the SCW crew and Dr. Ramzan talk about Cyber Credit Score Industry! Someone made an offhand comment about the Cyber Credit Score Industry on one of our shows a couple weeks ago, so we thought we'd bring it up as a compliance topic. We'll define what we're talking about when it comes to Cyber Credit Scores - what they are intended to do and for whom. Then we'll pick it apart, SCW style!

1. Zero Trust Intersects XDR in Today’s Digital Era – Zulfikar Ramzan, Ph.D. – SCW #53

The rapid shift to distributed work, along with radical changes in human behavior, is expanding digital risk for organizations and creating new opportunities for malicious actors. As such, organizations are rethinking how they define trust in securing critical data and resources. This interview will cover how capabilities and trends, such as XDR and passwordless authentication, are empowering organization to “never trust” and “always verify” leveraging unprecedented visibility and insight to protect what matters most.

This segment is sponsored by RSA Security.

We'll define what we're talking about when it comes to Cyber Credit Scores - what they are intended to do and for whom.

Then we'll pick it apart, SCW style!
