What is Zero Trust? What ISN’T Zero Trust? Let’s Make Sense of This!

Zero Trust is a major industry trend, but it has also become an overused marketing buzzword. NIST defines Zero Trust as “a set of cybersecurity paradigms” and “guiding principles”, but that leaves a lot of room for interpretation. This panel of experts will debate the definition, scope, and boundaries of Zero Trust, and look at several concrete examples using the ATT&CK Framework.

Moderator: Jason Garbis, Chief Product Officer, Appgate


  • Evan Gilman, Staff Engineer, VMware​
  • Jerry Chapman, Engineering Fellow, Optiv​
  • Amanda Berlin, Lead Incident Detection Engineer, Blumira​
  • Chase Cunningham, Chief Strategy Officer (CSO), Ericom Software
