Never Trust, Always Verify: Is Zero Trust the Next Big Thing in Cybersecurity?

Cyberattacks continue to rise every year and no sector seems to be immune. Hackers target sensitive information such as organizational, client, and financial data, as well as intellectual property (IP) and proprietary functions. As digital transformation becomes a top priority for many organizations, traditional perimeter-based security models are no longer sufficient to address the growing cybersecurity concerns. Against the backdrop, enterprises explore zero trust as it takes a micro-level approach to authenticate and approve access at every point within a network. Reasons to read: The cybersecurity landscape is swiftly changing, and businesses need more awareness to meet the evolving change. The report highlights the current state of play and the future potential of the zero trust approach in cybersecurity to protect critical digital infrastructure of enterprises across sectors such as financial services, healthcare, telecom, and transportation, among others.

The vision follows the organisation’s Smart Security programme that brings together a coalition of airports, regulators and airlines.

ACI World’s vision for the future of airport security explores several long-term trends affecting aviation and airports while considering the current economic context created by the pandemic.

The Smart Security vision also includes innovations such as artificial intelligence and the increasing use of big data and stand-off detection to promote a more seamless approach to airport security screening.

These innovations have the potential to radically transform the way that passengers and baggage are screened, ACI World noted.

The organisation said that it has been researching the market and seeking views from several industry experts in the field to evaluate potential advancements in aviation security screening.

ACI World director general Luis Felipe said: “As the aviation industry continues to plan for a sustained recovery from unprecedented Covid-19 crisis, ACI believes that any initiative that utilises improved technology to facilitate touchless and more efficient passenger journeys needs to be accelerated.

“The objective of Vision 2040 is to not only highlight technology and processes available today, but to look into those of the future which consider the changing needs and expectations of passengers following the Covid-19 pandemic and its effects.”

Last month, ACI World urged governments to provide immediate assistance and relief for airports to aid their operational restart.
