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 company will be responsible for the upgrade and extension of the K-Sim Navigation simulators based in SIDMAR, the ACP centre for simulation, research and maritime development.

The substantial upgrade will include the installation of new visual image generation and display/projection systems, as well as an array of new consoles and hardware panels at the centre’s main K-Sim Navigation simulator.

Additionally, a new floor projection system, which will replicate the port and starboard views from the bridge wings, will also be installed.

This will allow trainee officers to monitor tugs and pilot boats in demanding port and tug manoeuvring scenarios, which will have vessels in close proximity.

The delivery will also include two completely new K-Sim Navigation bridge simulators, one of which will be specially configured to duplicate a full-mission tugboat bridge and be capable of simulating various types of tug propulsion systems, such as Voith, Schottel and Azimuthing Stern Drive (ASD).

The student tug masters, pilots and crew members on the main bridge will be trained using the 360° vertical displays on the new bridge simulators.

Once equipped with this new technology, the Panama City-based centre will be capable of including multiple vessels in training scenarios.

Kongsberg Digital digital ocean executive vice-president Andreas Jagtøyen said: “It’s very satisfying to know that we can continue providing SIDMAR with our cutting-edge simulation technology, which now will be integrated for multi-vessel training scenarios.

“The commitment the Authority has shown with this large-scale K-Sim extension and upgrade confirms its faith in our simulation technology and bodes very well for our ongoing mutual development.”
