Zero Trust Security

Course

This course introduces the zero trust security model, a dynamic approach to addressing the continual evolution of cybersecurity threats for organizations that demand flexibility and scalability in modern work environments. Traditional security models that rely on strong outer defenses are no longer viable strategies to protect a company’s valuable assets. Students who complete this course will be able to critically examine corporate security practices against the philosophy of “Never Trust, Always Verify”, and will be empowered to advocate for Zero Trust Architecture initiatives.
