Cybersecurity refers to the practice of protecting systems, networks, and data from digital attacks. It’s crucial because these attacks can cause financial loss, damage to reputation, and compromise sensitive information.

Zero Trust is a security concept that assumes no trust, even within the internal network. It requires strict identity verification for anyone trying to access resources, regardless of their location. Traditional models typically trust users once they’re inside the network perimeter.

Implementing Zero Trust can enhance security by reducing the attack surface, preventing lateral movement of threats, and improving visibility into network activity. It also helps organizations comply with regulatory requirements.

Key components include micro-segmentation, identity and access management (IAM), continuous monitoring, encryption, least privilege access, and multi-factor authentication (MFA).

While Zero Trust may introduce additional security measures such as multi-factor authentication, the overall impact on user experience and productivity can be positive due to reduced downtime from security incidents and improved confidence in the network’s security.
