A WEDI Virtual Spotlight: How Adopting a Zero-Trust Identity Strategy Can Help Protect Patient Data
In September 2022, Health-ISAC, a trusted community within the Healthcare and Public Health Sector that offers information and collaboration on physical and cyber threat intelligence, published a white paper to help healthcare professionals understand and begin to implement a zero-trust architecture. The paper also discusses how zero trust can enable effective access and strengthen their security postures. We welcome the lead author of the white paper, Zachary Martin, Senior Policy Advisor with Venable LLP, to walk the audience members through zero-trust architecture; what is it, what does it solve, what challenges exist in implementation, and how it can benefit healthcare?
