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.

Under the partnership, the complementary strength of the two organisations will be unified to enable shipping stakeholders to combat cyber-attacks.

The alliance will also aid shipowners in meeting International Maritime Organisation (IMO) and International Association of Classification Societies (IACS) specifications.

Bureau Veritas has come up with a set of rules (NR 659) for evaluating the level of maritime cyber risk, which will help shipowners to establish and execute an effective cyber security plan on vessels as well as onshore.

For this, Bureau Veritas will carry out a complete inventory of systems, equipment and networks linked at sea and on land.

This will perform an analysis of cyber risk to recognise vulnerable equipment and systems.

Bureau Veritas will then set up a cyber risk management policy and ensure the proper application of technical and organisational procedures.

It will help operators and shipowners adhere to IMO cyber security requirements.

Through an additional Class Notation, it will also authenticate the management of cyber risk onboard vessels.

After these steps, Bessé will respond to risks acknowledged by Bureau Veritas and develop custom-made insurance products, enabling shipowners to hand over part of the cyber risk to their insurers.

The latest move comes amid increasing instances of cyberattacks.

Earlier in the year, South Korea’s national flagship carrier HMM reported a cyberattack, which mainly affected its email server.

For promoting cyber security in the maritime industry, the Cyber Council of the Maritime World (C2M2) was formed, of which Bureau Veritas and Bessé are both members.

A France Cyber Maritime Association was also developed at the end of last year.
