Tonight’s topic

"Zero Trust – Separating the reality from the hype.
 There is a lot of press about Zero Trust at the moment, and rightly so – it is seen as the natural evolution of how your users operate in a cloud-centric world. It can also be seen as an onerous and daunting transformation task. We will discuss the core fundamentals of Zero Trust and how to quickly and simply deploy this solution to increase your security and put your DC and cloud into stealth mode.

Guests Feedback

Exceptional venue and delightful company, I had a very enjoyable evening surrounded by peers discussing current  information security concerns. 

It was interesting to learn about a new capability, and listen from an organisation who had recent experience of implementing the capability into their complex environment.

I really enjoyed the format of the evening, the discussions helped to draw out the benefits this concept could have to an organisation.

Overall a great event.
