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 contract was awarded as part of the integrated network management (iNM) programme that seeks to implement digital products to enable Eurocontrol to enhance the efficiency, safety and sustainability of the European aviation network.

As agreed, Indra will join Eurocontrol’s established business partners to support the digitalisation. In a statement, Indra said that the new contract may value up to $203.2m (€173m).

The digitalisation of operational systems is expected to improve flight operation planning, which in turn will increase punctuality and security.

Indra will deliver solutions to boost Eurocontrol’s air traffic flight and flow management services. It will also support the automation of the Network Manager’s operations.

Indra unit Minsait will play a central role in the project, along with other subsidiaries.

Eurocontrol director general Eamonn Brennan said: “iNM is a digital transformation programme that will further optimise the way Eurocontrol supports aviation, enabling us to continue to provide innovative, customer-focused solutions to our stakeholders.

“This is the largest single capital investment programme in Eurocontrol’s history, and I am delighted that in Indra we have found a world-leading technology company to join our existing technology partners to realise our ambition of being the digital leader in aviation.”

Separately, a consortium of Atos and Cronos secured a $69.3m (€59m) contract from Eurocontrol for lifecycle management of the digital products.

Headquartered in Belgium, Eurocontrol is responsible for air traffic management across Europe. As a European Commission-designated network manager, it works closely with air navigation service providers (ANSPS), airports, airlines and the military across 43 states.
