Zero Trust — Rethinking Security

James Kretchmar headshot

James Kretchmar

Vice President & Chief Technology Officer

Akamai Technologies

Prevailing models of information systems security are more problematic — and dangerous — than most enterprises recognise. The digital revolution has increased the stakes and led to “best practice” security architectures that are fatally flawed — a mix of components doing the wrong job and having an outsized impact on overall systems safety.

James Kretchmar explores:

  • Getting to the heart of the security problem
  • Rethinking how safety systems work
  • Executing the simpler, safer and more consistent methods of zero trust
