Join CDM and Palo Alto Networks, the world’s cybersecurity leader, as we discuss best practices for applying Zero Trust principles to securing managed and unmanaged IoT devices.

The traditional enterprise network perimeter is dissipating with work from home, BYOD, corporate resources shifting to the cloud, and Internet of Things (IoT) trends. The modern enterprise network now has to take into account all types of devices accessing the network, from conventional IT devices to non-conventional internet-enabled devices including security cameras, HVAC, smart lighting, smart blinds, infusion pumps, printers, smart coffee machines, smart TVs, virtual assistants, ATMs, and point-of-sale terminals, to name a few, comprising what is popularly called the Internet of Things (IoT).

These devices create serious security concerns for enterprises as the IoT devices are often shipped with vulnerabilities, are difficult to patch, lack security controls, and significantly widen the threat surface, making the network more susceptible to lateral exploits.

The increase in the number of IoT devices and a reported 3 billion attacks on IoT devices in 2021 necessitates organizations to reassess their risk management strategy and move towards adopting a Zero Trust approach to include securing IoT devices.

In this webinar you will learn:

●       What the principles of a Zero Trust cybersecurity strategy are and how they apply to securing IoT devices.
●       How traditional network security strategies are inadequate for protecting IoTs.
●       Why a practical life-cycle approach based on Zero Trust principles is the right methodology for securing IoT devices.

Hosted by Gary Miliefsky, Publisher of Cyber Defense Magazine with Special Guest Speaker Xu Zou, Vice President of Network Security, at Palo Alto Networks.
