Mar 18, 2024
The CISO's Gambit Ep. 34


Darin Hurd, EVP and CISO at Guaranteed Rate, explains the value of zero trust security in the financial sector. Lenders cannot control the federal funds interest rate or the state of the economy, which can change rapidly. However, they must respond and adapt to these variables and others while ensuring their infrastructure remains secure. Darin explains how grit, partnerships, and clear communication are key factors in bringing zero trust to financial organizations.
