Maturity Model and its future
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Special Publication (SP) 800-207 provides the following operative definition of Zero Trust and the Zero Trust architecture (ZTA).
Zero Trust provides a collection of concepts and ideas designed to minimize uncertainty in enforcing accurate, least privilege per-request access decisions in information systems and services in the face of a network viewed as compromised.
ZTA is an enterprise’s cybersecurity plan that uses Zero Trust concepts and encompasses component relationships, workflow planning, and access policies. Therefore, a Zero Trust enterprise is the network infrastructure (physical and virtual) and operational policies that are in place for an enterprise as a product of a ZTA plan.
The Zero Trust Maturity Model discussed in this e-book helps to evaluate where you are standing in your Zero Trust journey and what lies ahead.
