Redefining security: unlocking the power of zero-trust architecture in smart manufacturing

In this online session, we will delve into the revolutionary concept of zero-trust (ZT), a paradigm that transforms conventional security models by instilling the principle of never trusting and always verifying. ZT deployment in smart manufacturing is still in its early stages, presenting challenges in principles, architecture, and implementation. Sirris experts, well-versed in ZT and smart manufacturing security, will demystify complexities, offering insights to design a secure and reliable ZT architecture (ZTA).

What can you expect? 

  • Why should we move towards zero-trust (ZT)? 
  • What are the important steps towards ZT? 
  • Identifying critical challenges of zero-trust architecture (ZTA) implementation. 
  • Recommending strategic schemes for comprehensive ZTA realisation. 
  • Outlining a simplified process model for transitioning from a perimeter-based security to ZTA. 
  • Discussing ZT security for NIS2 compliance.

During the session, we will present a wide range of viable options for successfully implementing the ZTA model in its true sense. Our discussions will delve into the role of authentication and access controls as key principles of ZTA. Furthermore, we will provide thorough discussions on cutting-edge techniques for authentication and access control, along with insights into conventional methods of security automation and encryption as additional tenets for deploying ZTA.
