ZScaler Presentation: Lisa Lorenzin – Transitioning to a Zero Trust Architecture

Bio: Lisa Lorenzin is Senior Director of Transformation Strategy at Zscaler, specializing in secure application access and digital transformation. For more than 25 years, she has worked in a variety of network and information security roles and has contributed to open standards for endpoint integrity and network security from the Trusted Computing Group (TCG) and Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF).

Lisa’s current focus is on helping customers achieve their security goals and create a seamless user experience across cloud and mobile environments through the use of cloud-delivered zero trust access solutions.

Abstract: Transitioning to a Zero Trust architecture improves the risk framework and attack surface of the entire environment, while at the same time enabling organizations to move to a “work comes from everywhere” strategy. The evolution to Zero Trust can be simplified and accelerated by a natural progression from older architectures with on-premise security stacks, to a modern cloud-delivered SASE approach. Zscaler’s Zero Trust Exchange enables modern workplace enablement, cyber threat protection, and infrastructure modernization.
