Cyber security is an evolving discipline driving not just the need to identify the cyber risks but to also understand the threats and opportunities these risks present. The impact of an unmitigated threat can cascade and be far reaching:

  • damage to rail infrastructure and/or the environment;
  • disruption of rail services and consequential costs;
  • economic loss;
  • increased costs of operation;
  • legal and compliance risks including privacy; and
  • loss of sensitive business or government information.

The industry has been making progress towards improving and advancing their cyber security capability, successful implementation of cyber security requires an industry wide approach to the increasing cyber threats.

In addition to establishing defendable architectures and resilient systems, we must commit to improving cyber security skills, awareness and education, and understand the central role this capability has in enabling the digital railways of the future.
