EA Webinar Event – “Cybersecurity in the railway industry”

May 25 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm UTC+10


Cybersecurity is a hot topic worldwide with attacks being performed against multiple domains. Over the past 5 years there has been a major increase in attacks on the railway system with a number denial of service and ransomware attacks being announced.

The railway industry is clearly a target for cyber criminals, and it is clearly hard to defend due to the inherent geographical distribution and technologically speaking the railway systems are designed with safety and availability rather than any focus on security. The railway becomes more of a target now as it starts to move to computer-based systems using IP protocols and wireless communication and networking.

There has been a recent release of a CENELEC Standard (EN 50701) to deal with Cyber Security for Railway Applications where this builds on the underlying standards such as ISO 27001 and IEC 62443.

Join subject matter experts as they provide an overview of why cybersecurity is important in the railway industry, highlighting attacks which have been executed on railways and asking the question as to whether your systems are protected, with your railway network and assets being monitored for attacks.
