These technologies enable greater efficiency, flexibility, and customization of our manufacturing operations, but also introduce new cybersecurity risks.

The manufacturing sector is critical to Canadas economy and the security of our industrial systems is of paramount importance. As we connect more and more devices and systems to our manufacturing operations, we open up new vectors for cyber attacks, putting our operations and data at risk.

Topic: Why Your Corporation Needs a Zero Trust Cybersecurity Strategy


The term “Zero Trust Architecture” means a security model, a set of system design principles, and a coordinated cybersecurity and system management strategy based on an acknowledgment that threats exist both inside and outside traditional network boundaries.

The Zero Trust security model eliminates implicit trust in any one element, node, or service and instead requires continuous verification of the operational picture via real-time information from multiple sources to determine access and other system responses.

In essence, a Zero Trust Architecture allows users full access but only to the bare minimum they need to perform their jobs.
