Join Forrester Consulting and Datacom for a live webinar revealing the findings of a new custom study on Zero Trust (ZT) adoption in Australia and New Zealand — surveying more than 200 cybersecurity decision-makers — and gain insights into how businesses in the region are faring when it comes to implementation, barriers to progress and some practical advice on how to increase the chance of successful adoption within your organisation.

During the event, Forrester industry expert Jinan Budge (Vice President & Principal Analyst - Security & Risk) and Datacom Group CIO and CISO, Karl Wright, will discuss the research findings and provide their views on challenges and opportunities ahead for Australia and New Zealand organisations — whether just starting on their ZT journey, or well on their way — including why putting people and culture at the heart of a Zero Trust strategy is critical to success.

We hope you can join us for what we know will be an insightful and informative event.
