Cybersecurity is becoming increasingly important as more and more aspects of rail operations become digital. A hacked operating system can lead to disruption, infrastructure damage, harm to people and brand damage.
Operational technologies and information technologies often share physical environments, opening up numerous attack avenues through the wifi and infotainment system, the CCTV or passenger information system, to name but a few.
Transport companies have to have resilient cybersecurity systems in place so they can protect their assets and detect and respond to incidents appropriately.
