RAIL SECURITY

OVERVIEW:

Ensuring the security of people, technology and assets is key to a safe railroad network. Digital and physical security technology must be invested in with $2 billion spent since 9/11 and a further $6 billion of needs identified.

With train control, communications and mission critical networks becoming IT driven the issue of network security and cyber threats has been steadily increasing. It is no longer the responsibility on 1 department and requires a collaborative approach from many stakeholders.
