Cybersecurity for the rail industry eBook
Rail system digitalization is yielding unprecedented efficiency gains and customer service improvements. Digitalization, however, requires increased connectivity. Operations Control Center (OCC) networks are now routinely exposed to IT networks, and through IT networks to the Internet, dramatically increasing the rail system’s attack surface. This degree of cyber risk is unacceptable for vital networks such as signaling, train safety and energy networks.
The solution is not to stop becoming more efficient or to stop automating and connecting our systems. The solution is to understand the complete spectrum of risks, including safety and reliability risks, and to design safety and security solutions into our systems, just as we currently do to protect Personal Identifiable Information (PII) and other important information resources.
A new eBook from Waterfall explores how to powerful and practical cybersecurity to vital networks at the Operations Control Center in a manner consistent with IEC 62443 and the upcoming CENELEC TS-50701 cybersecurity standards. The most powerful security measures are also the most future-proof.
