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.

According to Bentley, Bentley’s iTwin platform covers project conception in the early phase design until the handover.

Shell Gulf of Mexico deepwater projects general manager GT Ju said: “Shell Deepwater Projects is developing an integrated Workflow and Data Platform from system selection to asset handover to streamline our capital projects processes and accelerate time to first oil.

“The platform is being developed in partnership with Bentley, leveraging Bentley’s iTwin open, scalable Azure cloud-based platform, which provides interoperability across owner and supply chain systems.

“We believe that an end-to-end platform that gives us visibility and transparency to project and engineering data across our portfolio will be a key driver in delivering competitive projects.”

Furthermore, Bentley said it is providing investment funds to Norwegian software company FutureOn to accelerate digitalisation within the oil and gas (O&G) industry.

FutureOn will combine its field design application and its API-centric collaboration platform with Bentley’s digital twin platform ‘iTwin’.

Bentley Systems chief product officer Nicholas Cumins said: “Think Big – Prove Small – Scale Fast – sums up the overall approach Shell and Bentley share in this initiative. Bentley’s iTwin platform is ideally suited to providing aligned, secure and visual access to project data across the supply chain and capital projects ecosystem.

“Shell’s selection of Bentley’s iTwin platform validates our open approach to digital twins and underscores the ability of the platform to scale to the largest, most complex capital projects and dynamic engineering use cases.”
