The International Association of Public Transport (UITP) has published a report, ‘Practical Guidance on Cybersecurity: Requirements in Tendering’, addressing the lack of clarity and consistency across public transport operators (PTOs) and the supply chain to address cybersecurity. It provides unmatched consolidation of thought leadership on cybersecurity in the public transportation industry and across multiple modalities of passenger rail and bus.
The report highlights the need for more cybersecurity awareness in public transportation, the distinction between operational technology and information technology systems, commonality and reference to applicable cybersecurity standards, alignment of cybersecurity expectations of PTO buyers and vendors, and more cybersecurity engineering in the V-Model. The report’s publication is timely for PTOs due to the increasing number and sophistication of cyberattacks.
If you are involved in the public transportation industry and concerned about cybersecurity, the UITP Practical Guidance on Cybersecurity is a must-read for you. It provides valuable insights into the current state of cybersecurity in the industry and offers practical solutions to address the challenges faced by public transport operators.
