Enabling Secure and Reliable Digital Maintenance Operations in Rail

Webinar | 22 JUNE 2023 | 15:00 CEST

In Partnership With: 

RazorSecure  Metis Webinar


Global losses from rail cyber security incidents are estimated to cost billions of dollars every year. Increasingly complex software compatibility issues and deficiencies in current digital maintenance practices have led to urgent rail safety alerts being issued in the UK.

More than half of all cybersecurity incidents are caused by internal threats – whether from inadvertent poor practices (such as password sharing and human error) or malicious internal activity by employees.

Cyber vulnerabilities can be caused by poor password management, lack of network access control and authentication, and poor management of service laptops, which often run out-of-date security software.

Panel - How could future legislation changes impact the implementation of digital maintenance?

This panel will cover the legislative approach to digital maintenance, including known updates to standards that may impact the way digital maintenance is performed. The second publication of Security of Network & Information Systems Regulations (NIS2), the EU cyber resilience act (CRA), the IEC 63452 railway cybersecurity standard and similar regulations, acts and standards are subjects for debate in this panel, including their practical implementation and what this may mean for those developing and publishing digital maintenance plans.
