Protecting modern railway infrastructure from cyberattacks is imperative and in many cases overlooked or neglected in the push for digital transformation. To remain competitive organisations must adopt new technologies, processes and business models, all of which can deliver significant shareholder value, but are not without their share of cyber risk. The increase in supply chain and ransomware attacks across critical infrastructure and manufacturing industries has highlighted just how vulnerable our interconnected systems are and the transportation sector is no exception. How can we innovate securely? Transport and logistics are crucial to our economys’ success globally. The 9th annual Cyber Senate Rail Cybersecurity UK and Europe conference will provide cyber security experts, product manufacturers and asset owners a unique forum to better define how we collaborate, share best practices and define our maturity in acting on intelligence.
The Cyber Senate 9th annual Rail Cybersecurity UK and Europe conference will address the railways “Detect, Respond and Recover,” initiatives, highlight the growing dependence of the “Internet of Rail,” our inherent vulnerabilities created in the design of these “system of systems” and how the sector can mitigate risk and respond appropriately. Attendees will hear insight on how manufacturers are securing rolling stock by design (locomotives and freight), standards such as TS50701, the challenges of IoT proliferation, predictive maintenance and the maturing of endpoint detection. Furthermore, we will dig deeper into areas such as cloud monitoring, identifying critical assets and managing blindspots, the convergence of IT and OT, remote access security, potential impacts on safety, governance, supply chain, ransomware and how we can operationalise data to mitigate threats and enhance organisational efficiency.
We look forward to your organisations joining us and taking an active part in being part of the solution in securing our transport sector, March 21/22nd 2023, with the Cyber Senate.
