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 airport will install 20 Smiths Detection HI-SCAN 10080 XCT automatic explosives detection systems (EDS) for the Terminal 2 Baggage Handling System redevelopment.

From this month, 20 HI-SCAN 10080 XCT units will be installed in Terminal 2 over the next four years.

Smiths Detection will also provide on-site maintenance, including comprehensive hardware and software support.

Smiths Detection Asia MD John Tan said: “Before the aviation sector was disrupted by Covid-19, Changi Airport is one of the busiest airports in the world requiring high volumes of baggage screening, and our next-generation technology helps support this implementation.

“We are confident that this partnership with Changi Airport Group will lead the way in driving higher standards for future adoption.”

The HI-SCAN 10080 XCT has received Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and European Civil Aviation Conference (ECAC) 3.1 certifications.

It has a combined dual-energy X-ray scanner and uses CT technology to generate high-resolution 3D images to increase the detection performance.

The HI-SCAN 10080 XCT has a belt speed of 0.5mps, which can provide processing capacity of up to 1,800 bags an hour, increasing the speed and efficiency of the screening process.

Additionally, its modular design is said to make installation flexible and easy, with the ‘highest operational availability and easy maintenance’.

In June, Singapore postponed the construction of Terminal 5 at Changi Airport for two years.
