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.

Using the fully digitalised control centre, GTR will be able to track the handling of aircraft by converging real-time information on passenger boarding, baggage reclaiming and ramp loading activities through a digital dashboard.

Guest services personnel can now use a smartphone to perform the gate boarding process. Staff can track the gate boarding process in real-time.

In addition, GTR will deploy the smartphones at the baggage carousel for baggage reconciliation and the e-readback ramp loading system.

This is expected to offer an organised view of all baggage and cargo loads for the flight, while also ensuring 100% accurate aircraft weight and balance readings for flight planning purposes.

“This digital control centre is a first for Malaysia, and will revolutionise how ground operations services are delivered.”

Ground Team Red CEO Kevin Chin said: “This digital control centre is a first for Malaysia, and will revolutionise how ground operations services are delivered. The centre will allow us to serve our clients better while providing an improved travel experience for passengers and improving hub passenger connectivity through klia2, and it is our goal to establish more such centres across the region in the near future.”

GTR staff can report for work by using their handheld devices and receive their flight assignments automatically. The move will eliminate the need for physically reporting to the office.

The new control centre also comprises a virtual reality training chamber with six modules to allow ground personnel to undergo training and simulation exercises.

Established in November last year, GTR is a joint venture between AirAsia and Singapore’s SATS.

The company is focused on delivering ground handling services such as guest handling, baggage services, aircraft handling, cargo handling and security services.
