As promised last week, we’ve published all of the Q&A sessions from our BeyondCorp Community Lounge during RSA 2018. I’m pleased that each session turned out incredibly informative, with unique and meaningful perspective towards our common goal of promoting BeyondCorp and Zero Trust across the industry.
There’s a lot to get through, so grab a blanket and some popcorn, and binge away!

Here are a few additional things that caught my eye this past week.
Identity is Dead [LockStep]
Not holding anything back with the title here, Stephen Wilson makes some great points that are in line with our beliefs about Zero Trust. Dynamic authentication and authorization can’t be tied to some static identity. Environments are always changing, as are the attributes that make up an “identity” that can be evaluated. The more we decouple the logic from the systems of records, the more capable we are in making intelligent decisions.
AI Can Help Cybersecurity—If It Can Fight Through the Hype [WIRED]
Ironic for WIRED to call out hype, but I couldn’t agree more with this article. Marc’s session at our event highlighted the importance of injecting intelligence into automated security tooling. It starts with the architecture – Layer 7 controls enable you to gain the observability needed to make intelligent decisions. If we approach it from the perspective of learning behavioral patterns, not the hype around AI, then we can certainly improve our overall security posture.
Google on BeyondCorp: Empowering employees with security for the cloud era [RSA Conference]
Unfortunately, I had to miss Google’s presentation about BeyondCorp at RSA, but thankfully, they posted the slides. They’ve evolved their presentation to be more clear and concise, focusing in on a few key points. It’s more digestible that way, and I’m glad to see them continuing to promote BeyondCorp.
That does it for this week. Check back this time next week for another set of relevant news, articles, and events. Cheers,
