Zero Trust is a security strategy, and by definition is broad in scope and impact. Because of this, it can be overwhelming for the security practitioner, as well as for enterprises looking to adopt it. As a result, people often struggle to get started with their Zero Trust initiatives. This can lead to stalled projects, a too-technical approach that delivers minimal benefits, or organizational pushback.

Our focused and readable book provides clear guidance on how to successfully get started with a Zero Trust initiative. Covering technical and non-technical aspects, it gives you the knowledge and skills to define and communicate the value that Zero Trust will bring, identify and eliminate barriers to success, and determine appropriate “on-ramps” for initial Zero Trust projects.
