Every day, sophisticated adversaries are innovating new ways to breach government and industry networks, gain footholds in compromised systems, and seize control of high-value assets. IT security, however, has long lagged behind. Many organizations now see signature-based defenses are no match for determined adversaries, but they still need help elevating their security mindset. And they rightly suspect their security data holds significant untapped potential to sharpen cyber defenses, but they aren’t positioned to harness this power. To move beyond the status quo, leaders need help crafting blueprints and integrated solutions that enable mission and business priorities with security and resilience.
At PacSec, we help clients protect high-value assets by embracing a zero-trust mindset. And to be clear, zero trust isn’t a vendor buy. It’s a strategy driven by core principles: assume a breach; never trust, always verify; and allow only least-privileged access based on contextual factors. This model relentlessly questions the premise that users, devices, and network components deserve to be trusted just because they’re in the network.
Organizations can start embracing zero trust now with existing resources. PacSec, we show clients how to use seven pillars of zero trust and governance to elevate security and demonstrate increased maturity step by step. Applying this mindset can help protect critical data in real time from dynamic.
