Session 2 -  A Brief History of Zero Trust

At this year's largest Enterprise Security gathering - RSA Conference 2019 - the term 'Zero Trust' was thrown around so much that it made the RSAC Buzzwords Top 3 List. However, while Zero Trust may indeed be one of the hottest topics in security today, it is not exactly new.
In this talk we'll discuss the core principles behind the Zero Trust security philosophy, while also reminding the audience that this is not a new idea that came up this year - Zero Trust is a concept whose roots stretch back several decades! We'll dive into the evolution of Zero Trust, covering the major environmental and architectural shifts that are bringing the concept into the limelight today.
We'll also describe what a Security Mesh architecture is, how it implements the Zero Trust security philosophy, and how it can help deliver Zero Trust initiatives for your enterprise environments.
Tarun Desikan, co-founder and COO of Banyan
Tarun Desikan is the co-founder and COO of Banyan, a San Francisco-based startup at the forefront of Zero Trust security movement. Banyan's Zero Trust Intelligent Access platform provides secure, continuous, least privilege access and authorization for applications, infrastructure and microservices hosted in the cloud or hybrid environments.

Tarun has over 15 years of experience developing and securing network infrastructure and distributed applications. Tarun and the Banyan team have pioneered the use of a Security Mesh architecture for transparent Zero Trust security for user-to-app and app-to-app communications.

Planning to attend ISACA-SV Spring conference (2 May - 3 May 2019)?
We are in an unprecedented age of technological growth. The latest forecast from GSMA Intelligence projects by 2025 there will be 25 billion internet-connected devices globally - which is more than four devices per person. Privacy is of great significance and consumers want to know how their information is being used and protected. At the same time, data security is a top priority with companies paying more attention to getting a handle on what data they have, how to encrypt it, rolling out more granular access controls, and upgrading monitoring and auditing capabilities.

With that in mind, the ISACA SV Spring conference aims to weave a common narrative around data protection and privacy. Topics covered will include but not be limited to:
Data security and protection
  • Data privacy
  • Cloud Security & Virtualization
  • California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018
  • Application Security & DevOpSec
  • Open source software compliance and vulnerability management
  • Internal Audit
  • Governance, Risk & Compliance 
  • Data analytics and continuous auditing
  • Vendor risk management
  • Cybersecurity Negligence Claims
Session Title Speaker Name

2. How to future-proof your privacy compliance against the backdrop of new and emerging privacy laws? Sangeet Rajan, Managing Director BDO
