Many rail systems will require upgrades in the wake of new cyber-security standards and regulations, such as the NIS directive and TS-50701, which is heavily based on IEC 62443. This is because most security programmes in today’s rail systems are ad-hoc, and cyber-security is not an integral part of most rail projects’ designs and bids. Given the lack of cyber-security designed for and into rail’s operations, there is much uncertainty as to how these new requirements will impact operators, integrators and builders.

Watch this on-demand webinar, our expert speakers will explore:

  • The current and proposed cyber standards for rail systems.
  • Explore how cyber-security requirements differ for on-the-ground systems vs. rolling stock.
  • Highlight requirements that most owners and operators will find new or surprising.
  • Conclude with practical advice as to how to integrate cyber-security requirements and systems into already-deployed automation as well as into newly-designed systems going to bid.


• Understand how current and emerging security requirements for Operation Control Centres (OCC), signalling systems and rolling stock differ from existing practice
• Understand the different technologies and goals for perimeter defenses, endpoint cyber-security and intrusion detection systems for rail networks
• Practical cyber-security tips for both retrofits and new bids
• Learn from concrete examples – case studies in OCC, signalling systems and rolling stock around the world.
