Zero Trust

Advancement Center

Leading the development of tools and resources to guide zero trust implementation.
Zero Trust Advancement Center

Zero Trust is one of the most widely talked about cybersecurity trends today. Zero Trust says no part of a computer and networking system can be implicitly trusted, including the humans operating it. Therefore, we must put measures in place to provide assurance that the systems and their components are operating appropriately, typically under a “least privilege” model and continuously verified.

Creating an industry “north star” for Zero Trust has huge implications in raising the cybersecurity baseline across the board and eliminating significant systemic risk. CSA's mission is to create research, training, professional credentialing and provide an online center for additional curated Zero Trust resources. These tools will enable enterprises to understand and implement Zero Trust principles into business planning, enterprise architectures and technology deployments. Using CSA’s agile programs for research, training and certification, as well as our global footprint of industry experts, chapters, webinars and conferences, we are uniquely positioned to build and evangelize authoritative Zero Trust best practices and tools.

Program Partners

CSA has worked on this initiative with the support of highly credible industry leaders who serve as its founders and program partners. These founders are also a part of the initiative’s steering committee, providing oversight into the program development.


When the pandemic happened, you moved a billion people away from their physical networks, from their office network and you put them at random places at home from a network perspective. That broke the inertia of, "Oh, we can really ride the wave of all these rules built around the traditional network.” Legacy thinking gets thrown out the window. In a cloud sense, you need to manage the endpoints and the identity, and that's why Zero Trust is so relevant.

This network security model has to be turned on its head. The architecture needs to change. That's where the zero trust is coming in. Trust no one. Based on identity, based on device posture, based on other attributes, you connect the right user to right application. That's really what has to be done.

Jay Chaudhry
CEO, Chairman and Founder, Zscaler

In today’s mobile, work-from-anywhere world, identity has become the new security perimeter. According to the CrowdStrike 2022 Global Threat Report, nearly 80 percent of breaches leverage identity to compromise credentials and evade detection in organizations’ networks.
