Truth In Things

Jitsuin enables industries to continuously manage supply chain risks in IoT and act decisively with assured intelligence.

White Paper

Know Your Things - know your risk

Things are only secure until they are not – risks increase with time. 


Yesterday’s snapshot-in-time check-box security compliance and risk audits are not fit-for-purpose when new connected threats emerge at a moment’s notice and place business reputations at stake.


Fragmented infrastructure, long technology supply chains, stale maintenance records, an evolving security environment and emerging regulations – how can you do the right thing, right now and account for it later?


Jitsuin enables acceleration of Digital Transformation by increasing visibility of cyber-risk exposure, increasing operational efficiency, and enabling trusted collaboration to secure devices while increasing confidence in the data they produce. 


Jitsuin shared service histories of Things:


  • Record when who did what to secure a Thing
  • Show who knew what when
  • Characterise the evolving environment of Things 
  • Prove Things have known good status 
  • Build proof that data can be trusted
  • Give confidence in automation
  • Enable organizations to act with assured intelligence.


Jitsuin means Truth in Things.

Markets

Chief Information Security Officers of critical national infrastructure and essential services face a challenging business environment. The push for digital transformation to drive business efficiency introduces new cyber-physical risks while adversaries get stronger. 


Network Information Security Directives in the EU and Critical infrastructure Protection in the US recommend dynamic risk management to deliver the right outcomes. Yet the risks inherent in today’s long, fragmented, international technology supply chains compound the challenge: Security of connected Things is not the sole responsibility of those using it. It takes a continuous, collaborative effort from the digital supply chain to maintain the security posture of connected Things throughout their operational lifespan.


IT security is stressed, OT security relies on thinning air-gaps; with budgetary constraints it is impractical to employ a team of auditors to investigate and assure the security of all connected devices and their technology suppliers. A solution to managing digital supply chain risk of Internet Things must be autonomous, collaborative, enable high visibility and continuity, be authoritative and secure from manipulation. 


Distributed Ledgers have the attributes to solve these challenges and bring dynamic information assurance to the enterprise. Establishing a baseline and enrolling suppliers into a collaborative system of record will enable continuous and collaborative risk management. With shared ledgers, all digital supply chain stakeholders will know the instant a vulnerability is discovered and who should take the next action to mitigate risk. 


Jitsuin helps digitally transformed industries act decisively with Assured Intelligence.

The Name Jitsuin

Jitsuin is a Japanese word. Ask a Japanese citizen to sign a document and they’ll pick up one of three ink chop seals they own, not a pen. If the document is official, they’ll use their most trusted stamp: the jitsuin. 


Jitsuins are individually hand-carved by master craftsmen with bespoke designs on hard material that last a lifetime. Each unique jitsuin is registered by its owner at their local municipal office. If a contract is disputed, the ink seals can be checked against records. 


Analogous to the heritage Japanese system of trust, Jitsuin records the birth and life events of Internet Things and provides access to these permanent records. 


Jitsu means truth or essence; to us Jitsuin means:


 Truth in Things


Jitsuin is privately funded by angel and strategic investors.
