Zero trust vs. castle and the moat

What does zero trust have to do with electric cars?

For this episode, Robby is joined by Tony Fergusson CISO – EMEA at Zscaler. Tony has more than 25 years of experience in IT networking and security in Manufacturing, Information Technology and Financial Services, and even more importantly, he loves talking about zero trust – and has done so for more than a decade.

Tony chats with Robby about his article “What IT can learn from Tesla about disrupting the status quo”, and why he believes the zero trust security model represents "an elegantly simple" path forward. They also talk about what the biggest obstacles to the zero trust model are, and why he thinks some people and companies are scared of the zero trust concept.
