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 report noted that Japan’s transport ministry recently revised safety guidelines to allow these s—called ‘digital mirrors’,  camera images displayed on monitors.

Valeo and Ichikoh have worked together on lighting systems, but are now expanding their collaboration to take advantage of Valeo’s expertise in sensors and Ichikoh’s experience with mirrors. Valeo will develop the imaging system linking to the liquid crystal display monitors while Ichikoh will handle the mirror casing, Nikkei said.

Valeo holds a 42% stake in Ichikoh.

While more features are being packed into rearview mirrors, embedded camera technology is developing quickly, researchers note.

Audi’s R18 Le Mans prototype has no rear window. Instead, it features a digital rearview mirror. A small camera located at the rear of the car relays images to a 7.7-inch digital screen in place of the interior rearview mirror. This technology could trigger more styled supercars to eliminate the rear window.

Nissan used the 2014 Geneva show to reveal its so-called Smart rearview mirror, claiming it as the world’s first LCD monitor that provides rearward visibility under various conditions, but also allows the driver the ability to switch between the LCD monitor and the traditional rearview mirror, depending on the driver’s preference.
