5th Annual Rail Cyber Security Summit
18 Feb, 2020 - 19 Feb, 2020
The proliferation and advancement of integrated operational technologies and the Internet of Things has enhanced operational efficiency but paradoxically has increased the attack surface exponentially across the international transport sector. The impact of supply chain vulnerabilities, insecure IT systems and the challenge of securely converging IT and OT to deliver the promises of Industry 4.0 efficiencies, has increased the threat to security and safety across the rail sector. C level executives driving digital transformation are becoming more invested in ensuring the design of a secure foundation, making the 5th annual Rail Cybersecurity 2020 conference an ideal platform for us to collectively define how we overcome the barriers and challenges of cybersecurity in Rail 4.0. The Cyber Senate launched the Rail Cybersecurity Summit over 4 years ago, providing Train Operating Companies, Rolling Stock Companies, Government and global subject matter experts a unique and highly informative public and private information sharing opportunity. We have facilitated key conversations and networking opportunities that have helped foster the current resilience initiatives in the rail sector and are pleased to continue our work in 2020.
