Cyber-security risks and requirements in metro networks: A deep dive

Join this webinar with Waterfall Security Solutions which focused on cyber-security risks and requirements for new and existing metro networks.

Cyber-security in metro networks is evolving rapidly. Across the world, new metros are being built with a fresh look at cyber-resilience, which is materially impacting automation and other requirements. In parallel, older metros are evolving to become increasingly digitalised, with IT/OT connectivity requirements that must coexist with safety imperatives in systems such as communications-based train control (CBTC).

In Europe, the Technical Specification TS-50701 is finally a reality. With the specification, the cyber-security landscape has changed for metros, affecting bids and forcing a reckoning for existing cyber-defences, especially for network segmentation designs for control centres, signalling, energy systems and rolling stock in urban metros and tramways.

In this webinar we explored:

  • The most pressing cyber-security risks for metro networks
  • Cyber-security requirements for new and existing metro networks
  • The role of TS-50701 in evolving the posture of European metro networks, and what may be ripple effects in other regions
  • Real world examples, extracted from current bids and cyber-security projects from the international landscape.
