Security = Zero Trust 

In our evolving digital world, one thing remains a constant: the fundamental importance of security. With increasing levels of remote working and IoT developments like the Smart City and Connected Mobility, the attack vectors – both technological and human – are becoming more numerous and potentially more dangerous. As technology advances, new processes, new methods, and new styles of security and new concepts for securely interconnecting resources are becoming more important to ensure that digital assets and the underlying Internet infrastructure are well protected. 

For the Issue on Security in December 2022, dotmagazine welcomes articles from members, partners and customers of the eco Association/DE-CIX Group that showcase how security can be embedded in the digital society and digital economy of today and tomorrow.
