Cyber Security for Railways

Protect your networks, operations and passengers from cyberattacks with our end-to-end security solutions

Protect your networks, operations and passengers from cyberattacks with our end-to-end security solutions.

Digital transformation is bringing substantial benefits in railway safety, operational efficiency and reliability, as well as an enhanced passenger experience. Yet, it also inevitably increases the vulnerability of railways to cyber-threats.

This means that the continued protection of rail infrastructure will require stronger and more robust railway communications network security, with new technological and process measures being implemented.

Railway infrastructure is under attack

Hardly a day goes by without the media reporting a cyber-security incident or exposure of a risk somewhere in the world. Not only are attacks becoming ever-more sophisticated, but the potential damage that can result is growing, even physical damage to critical railway infrastructure such as signaling systems.

Railway infrastructure can ill afford any successful cyber-attacks. Not just financial loss is at stake; lives can be put in jeopardy.

Key capabilities to protect networks include:

  • Security automation: encompass business processes, incident response plans, regulations and policies
  • End-to-end security: encompass the operation of the network and its processes
  • Multi-layer encryption: protect network traffic
  • Security analytics: correlate security-related information from across the network, devices and cloud layers to spot suspicious anomalies and provide insight into threats

Digital transformation has been providing extensive benefits in railway safety, operational efficiency and reliability, as well as enhanced passenger experience.
5G offers a significant opportunity for rail operators to transform and enhance operations.
