Every year there’s a new security strategy, but the fundamentals of good cyber hygiene remain the same. Every organization should make sure they’re doing routine tasks like patching systems and backing up data.

Another one of these fundamentals is Zero Trust: making sure nothing is granted implicit access on the network.

Tactics like these are what Vishal Salvi, Chief Information Security Officer and Head of the Cybersecurity Practice at Infosys, calls “doing the boring stuff.” It’s often thankless, and not always the most glamorous of tasks, but doing these little things right contributes exponentially to building cyber resilience.

Vishal sat down with me to discuss his approach to getting security fundamentals like Zero Trust right in the new episode of The Segment: A Zero Trust Leadership Podcast.
