Join our experts to understand challenges of cybersecurity in safety critical systems, driven by the digitalization of the railway networks.
The webinar focusses on how to secure traffic management and interlocking systems as well as trackside and onboard control systems.
Digitalization is making railways faster, more efficient, thereby supporting the decarbonization targets as well as safer, more comfortable, and supporting the move from road to rail. The flip side is that this also exposes rail operators to cybersecurity threats, which can impact both the security and safety. The challenge is amplified by the scale and complexity of rail operations. Every Networks contain thousands of connected elements. Each one can be a potential access point.
Our experts will address these threats and describe how to manage a safe operation of railway networks today and in the future.
