Digital Crisis Response for Zero Trust Security Model

by | Jan 4, 2021

A large number of companies, government agencies and healthcare institutions have recently fallen victim to cyberattacks.

Some are increasingly sophisticated and are only discovered days or even months later: injecting malicious code, compromising computer software by creating a backdoor for spying on networks and stealing data.

The SolarWinds1 case is a perfect illustration: no organization, from the smallest to the largest multinational with significant technical and human resources in terms of cybersecurity is immune.

In the face of these threats, the Zero Trust Security Model is becoming increasingly popular as more and more organizations embark on digital transformation projects.

Before being a set of technologies to implement, Zero Trust Security Model is a philosophy: trust no one and no device.

A published article1 sums it up perfectly, Zero Trust Security Model consists of a few key ideas

  • Any network is by default considered hostile.
  • Internal and external threats are present on the network at all times.
  • Being inside an internal network is never a guarantee of absolute trust.
  • Each terminal, each user and each network flow must be authenticated and authorized.
  • Security policies must be dynamic and defined from as many data sources as possible.

Replacing an exclusive perimeter security model with a Zero Trust Security Model has many advantages of a much higher level of data protection.

Digital Crisis Response will be a strong ally of the Zero Trust Security Model, particularly in the following areas:

  • Cyber engagement of users for internal and external threat detection.
  • The ability to react to proven threats.

Digital Crisis Response to strengthen threat detection through employee engagement

The flaw is certainly human, but it is often forgotten that the most effective incident reporting available to any organization is also human.

Reporting an unavailable application, a suspicious item given by a user is often the cause of a threat detection.

This is why our solution includes services that teach users how to detect threats, and at the same time anchor vigilance behavior by giving them access to alerts via an alert function.

Digital Crisis Response, increasing responsiveness to cyber crises

A Zero Trust Security Model cannot be fully effective if the organization does not have agility in the face of threats that could penetrate the information system.

Digital Crisis Response includes advanced functionalities to support a digital crisis unit to mobilize internal and external skills, to carry out actions already identified and to monitor the evolution of the situation.

Our solution also integrates a “training” mode to develop the reflexes of the members of your crisis centre and a “real crisis” mode to increase its ability to react to a security event.

Digital Crisis Response’s feature set is the complementary element of any Zero Trust Security Model.
