Cryptocurrency becomes a target: “With interest rates (currently) at all time lows, and hyper-inflation and the U.S. stock market at all time highs, investors are looking at better returns on their money.

Embrace ZERO Trust Security: “We are all used to the traditional security model of authenticating to the perimeter VPN or a cloud application then carrying on our tasks. This “Trust but Verify” strategy assumes everything within an organisation’s network is trusted, and not already breached. Once a user is authenticated to the VPN, they can move around to any resource to which they have access. The assumption is the user is who they say they are, the user’s account is not compromised and that the user will act responsibly.”
“In short, this model leaves organisations vulnerable to credential theft, low and slow attacks, and malicious insiders. Essentially all authenticated users are trusted on the network.”
