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. Read our report and gather insights on the following topics:
  • Traditional vs zero trust protection
  • Key advantages and solution providers
  • Major industries and key players
  • Drivers and challenges
  • Top funded startups and Mergers & Acquisitions

The new data-driven compliance framework has been developed by LR in collaboration with major industry partners with an aim to cater to the growing use and advancement of digital twins by the marine and offshore operators to improve operations and other aspects.

A digital twin is defined as a multi-physics, data-driven model of a physical asset that often exists in a Cloud-based environment using data transmitted from the physical asset.

Digital Compliance is designed to be used by means of various defined levels with the system provider and operator to garner confidence in a digital twin used within a digital health management (DHM) system, which involves the digital technologies used to collect data and produce insight on an assets’ health.

The framework is also capable of evaluating and detecting the capabilities of a system provider to build an asset-specific twin.

Lloyd’s Register Marine and Offshore director Nick Brown said: “Digital Compliance is the framework that sets the foundation for what we call ‘Digital Class’.

“Demonstrating that Class requirements are met through data-driven techniques will allow us to better target Class services where they are needed most.”

“Digital Class is the vision we have, where advanced technology and data-driven techniques will allow our clients to demonstrate compliance with Class requirements in the future, remotely, periodically and/or continuously, and we are actively engaging with flags to discuss how we can extend this to statutory aspects.”

“Demonstrating that Class requirements are met through data-driven techniques will allow us to better target Class services where they are needed most, by having a better understanding of an asset’s health over its lifetime.

“Digital Class will also allow clients to submit Class relevant data either continuously or periodically to demonstrate compliance, leading to a more targeted and focused approach to physical survey.”

The new digital assurance framework has levels such as Digital Twin READY, Digital Twin APPROVED, Digital Twin COMMISSIONED, and Digital Twin LIVE.
