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.

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 strategic collaboration is expected to boost Pucobre’s productivity and safety at its mining operations in the Atacama region in northern Chile.

It includes development of an integrated information management system, which is already visible in Pucobre’s newly established control tower.

According to Epiroc, its new 6th Sense Mine Management system will bring together Pucobre’s existing systems and task management and reporting features, including the Mobilaris scheduler.

The existing machine fleet, irrespective of make or model, can be connected to 6th Sense.

Epiroc Mining and Infrastructure senior executive vice-president Helena Hedblom said: “We are happy to collaborate with Pucobre to modernise its mine operations to make it safer and more productive through our digital solutions and our new 6th Sense approach.

“This represents the future of mining.”

Epiroc’s 6th Sense solution helps ensure seamless operation of customers’ processes through automation, system integration and information management.

Pucobre already uses Epiroc’s Simba production drill rigs, Boomer face drilling rigs, and Scooptram and Minetruck underground loading and haulage vehicles.

Furthermore, Epiroc provides consumables and service to Pucobre.

Pucobre CEO Sebastián Ríos said: “We have high expectations in the implementation of 6th Sense to continue improving the safety and productivity of our underground mining operations.

“We have strengthened our relationship with Epiroc, as we both target excellence in mining operations. We rely on Epiroc´s strategic approach, its collaborative work and its professional team, which is regularly present at our mine site.”
