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 New SLC Airport has a single, centralised security checkpoint that is outfitted with automated screening lanes (ASLs) that help travellers to simultaneously place their items in bins for screening.

These bins will be moved by the conveyor belts into the X-ray machine tunnel and automatically return to the front of the security checkpoint.

ASL bins are said to be 25% larger compared to a typical bin and can hold a roll-aboard suitcase.

A unique radio frequency identification tag that comes with each bin allows for additional accountability of a traveller’s carry-on property.

Cameras integrated into the bins are capable of capturing images of the contents of each bin. They are linked side-by-side to the X-ray image of the contents of the carry-on bag.

In addition, the security checkpoint features eight advanced imaging technology body scanners, nine walk-through metal detectors and explosive detection equipment.

Alongside general screening lanes, TSA PreCheck screening is available. The security checkpoint offers 16 lanes at full capacity.

TSA Utah federal security director Mark Lewis said: “TSA worked closely with the Salt Lake City Department of Airports for the past several years to design TSA work areas within The New SLC to ensure optimal space for our employees to carry out the security mission.

“As a result, TSA will see improved efficiency in all our operations. Travellers departing The New SLC can expect to see new equipment and state-of-the art technology.”

Last month, employees of TSA participated in two simulations to preview and prepare for operations in the new airport.
