For GM to blaze a trail to its "All Electric Future", an IT foundation that supported a secure path to all their digital services was required. This session will highlight how General Motors developed a cybersecurity strategy that focused on identity services as the core element of the approach. Insight will be presented that details how each element of a zero-trust strategy can be realized thru a set of identity services that enable a secure digital enterprise. Additionally in the journey is a transformation from a “private to hybrid” cloud infrastructure model for IT resources and how Zero Trust principals play such a critical role. Of course, some bumps and bruises will be absorbed along the "Drive to ZTA" and best practices and guidance will be covered. Finally, leveraging the NIST Cybersecurity Framework will be covered as well.
