Session 4 – Zero trust: a panacea to increase security of supply chains?

Jul 11, 2024 | 9:10 AM - 10:00 AM

Session 4


Zero trust is increasingly being promoted as a new security paradigm to address the vanishing of digital security perimeters around organisations, including partners within supply chains. While in principle at least the migration to zero trust security offers a way to improve security quite radically, its cost/benefit is unclear, notably when considering usability, organisation, complexity, and other management aspects. Another issue related to zero trust is the extent to which it can enhance the security of supply chains in complex ecosystems with numerous partners, and how smaller partners who are not zero trust-ready (or cannot afford it) can nevertheless be included. This session will bring together technical and policy experts.
