Cyber security for railways
Digital transformation is bringing substantial benefits in railway safety, operational efficiency and reliability, as well as an enhanced passenger experience. Yet, it also inevitably increases the vulnerability of railways to cyber-threats.
This means that the continued protection of rail infrastructure will require stronger and more robust railway communications network security, with new technological and process measures being implemented.
Railway infrastructure is under attack
Hardly a day goes by without the media reporting a cyber-security incident or exposure of a risk somewhere in the world. Not only are attacks becoming ever-more sophisticated, but the potential damage that can result is growing, even physical damage to critical railway infrastructure such as signaling systems.
Railway infrastructure can ill afford any successful cyber-attacks. Not just financial loss is at stake; lives can be put in jeopardy.
The evolution to interconnected IP-based systems plus the rise in the use of internet-connected devices increases the vulnerability of railway operators to cyber attack.
