What is zero trust model of information security?
  • Ahmed Banafa, San Jose State University
The Zero Trust Model of information security simplifies how information security is conceptualized by assuming there are no longer “trusted” interfaces, applications, traffic, networks, or users. It takes the old model—“trust but verify”—and inverts it, because recent breaches have proven that when an organization trusts, it doesn’t verify. (Forrester).
