Weekly Summary (1/23/2023):Interesting news this week around ZT. API security rears its ugly multi-threaded head once again. APIs are part of a good security strategy and are certainly part of a ZT plan folks – pay attention to them. Uber didn’t and got hit 3 times in one year with basically the same avenue of compromise. Not good. Also where is the punitive measure here? Isn’t there a real problem with 3 fails of the same kind in a 12-month period that the regulators should be interested in? Just saying. I also included an article from the recent WEF symposium where the CEO of Microsoft states that organizations “need” Zero Trust. That’s pretty significant (and yes I know marketing is involved, but still). Read that article and get the insights that are tucked into the marketing hype. Lastly, there is an article from a services provider about ZT and compliance, which is one of the first that I have read. If you are trying to solve for, or justify, a ZT-approach based on compliance needs, I would check that report out.
