6 Zero Trust Insights from IBM Security's Stephen Coraggio and Greg Tkaczyk

Visibility, consistency, and control.

For Stephen Coraggio and Greg Tkaczyk of IBM Security, these are the three basic building blocks of any good Zero Trust security program.

"Zero Trust is a broad topic," said Greg, "but I think ultimately those are the three things that all of our clients are trying to achieve, regardless of what area of Zero Trust we're talking about."

Stephen and Greg are helping IBM Security clients apply these core Zero Trust components across their network to build risk reduction and improve cyber resilience.

The pair sat down with me to discuss the Zero Trust challenges they see clients facing in the new episode of The Segment: A Zero Trust Leadership Podcast.
