Call for Development Group Members – Guideline: Rail Cyber Security

The Rail Industry Safety and Standards Board (RISSB) is seeking nominations from people to join a Development Group to develop the Rail Cyber Security Guideline.

With the continued introduction of technology and the convergence of information technology and operational technology, rail systems are at risk of being compromised by people. This document will provide guidance on practices to address rail cyber threats and provide industry (rail operators, vendors and third parties) with specific information on how to assist in progressing the maturity of cyber security risk management. This guideline will support AS 7770 Rail Cyber Security and be considered part of the Rail Cyber Security Framework.

How to contribute
Stakeholders and interested parties are invited to submit nominations for subject matter experts to join this Development Group to contribute to the overall depth and quality of the Guideline.

DG membership is voluntary and requires the support of your organisation to attend and contribute. There will be 3 meetings over the development period, 1 face-to-face (expected November 2018) and 2 teleconferences (September and December 2018). Further information on the responsibilities of a Development Group member can be obtained from the RISSB website.

All nominations and enquiries are to be submitted to jbaker@rissb.com.au

As part of your nomination, can you please provide a brief detailing your contact details, your interest in this development (materially affected party, subject matter expert, etc.), and any other information which might support your participation.

Your information will assist us in ensuring a balanced representation from all major interest categories in the development of this document.

Closing date for nominations is Thursday, 23 August 2018.
