At a recent forum of senior CTOs, CISOs and analysts, several participants expressed a dislike for the term ‘zero trust’. Comments such as the vagueness of the message, the way different vendors use it and the confusion it caused amongst users made some forum members steer away from its branding for both internal and external communication. The group all agreed that the concepts behind zero trust are sound, but many wanted a better way to describe it to their broader organisations. By Phil Allen, VP, Ping Identity.

Ever since Snowden revealed the extent to which US intelligence agencies can so easily access our data, people have become mistrustful of US companies. A survey by GMX last year, for example, revealed that 73% of British internet users mistrust US companies over data protection concerns, which is more than double that of a similar survey in 2015 which showed that only 35% had such concerns. 8% of UK internet users have even left a US online service due to privacy concerns within the last twelve months, while 11% are planning to do so.

Traditionally, methods of data protection have focused on locking up their sensitive information away until it was deprotected to be used. While this may work for data that serves no current purpose, simply locking away the data greatly reduces its value, especially if the risks of loss of business or customer trust greatly outweigh the benefits of securing data. After all, what good is data if you can’t access it. By Trevor Morgan, product manager at comforte AG.
