Zero-Trust also applies to ITAD
When it comes to sensitive data, trust is a luxury today's organizations can't afford.

That's exactly why the Zero-Trust security model has gained acceptance as the go-to framework for network security. But Zero-Trust isn't just effective in combating modern cyber threats — it's also the cornerstone of an effective IT asset disposition strategy.

Whereas Zero-Trust network access is about permission (Do you have permission to be on this network?) Zero-Trust computer recycling is about possession (Do you have possession of this asset?).

Assets get lost or stolen in transit, manifests are filled with errors, and equipment is sold off through shady remarketing channels. Worst of all, even though these open your company up to significant financial and legal liability, it's you, not your vendor, that's left holding the bag when things go south.

Ransomware is all over the news right now. But it's not just gaps in your firewall that these hackers are looking for; it's your old computer equipment. A single unsecured asset can create a plethora of problems because these backdoors make it easy to install ransomware.
Traditional trust-based ITAD create a nightmare for data security and a dilemma for IT asset management. Traditional trust-based ITAD is ineffective.

As John Kindervag eloquently states, the point of Zero Trust is not to make networks more trusted; it's to eliminate the concept of trust.

The point of Zero-Trust ITAD is not to make disposal vendors more trusted; it's to eliminate the concept of trust from ITAD.

Everything You Need to Know About DNS Attacks
It's important to understand DNS, potential attacks against it, and the tools and techniques required to defend DNS infrastructure. This report answers all the questions you were afraid to ask. Domain Name Service (DNS) is a critical part of any organization's digital infrastructure, but it's also one of the least understood. DNS is designed to be invisible to business professionals, IT stakeholders, and many security professionals, but DNS's threat surface is large and widely targeted. Attackers are causing a great deal of damage with an array of attacks such as denial of service, DNS cache poisoning, DNS hijackin, DNS tunneling, and DNS dangling. They are using DNS infrastructure to take control of inbound and outbound communications and preventing users from accessing the applications they are looking for. To stop attacks on DNS, security teams need to shore up the organization's security hygiene around DNS infrastructure, implement controls such as DNSSEC, and monitor DNS traffic
