|Cyber Senate’s 9th Annual Rail Cybersecurity UK and Europe Conference is taking place on 21st and 22nd March 2023 at The Copthorne Tara Hotel London Kensington and the 3rd annual Rail Cybersecurity USA conference at the MxD Innovation Centre in Chicago on the 23rd and 24th of May 2023 (Currently open to Call for Papers).
This year’s conferences will address the railways’ “Detect, Respond and Recover,” initiatives, highlight the growing dependence on the “Internet of Rail,” our inherent vulnerabilities created in the design of these “system of systems” and how the sector can mitigate risk and respond appropriately. Attendees will hear insight on how manufacturers are securing rolling stock by design (locomotives and freight), standards such as TS50701, the challenges of IoT proliferation, predictive maintenance and the maturing of endpoint detection. Furthermore, we will dig deeper into areas such as cloud monitoring, identifying critical assets and managing blindspots, the convergence of IT and OT, remote access security, potential impacts on safety, governance, supply chain, ransomware and how we can operationalise data to mitigate threats and enhance organisational efficiency.
We are still finalising US speakers, if of interest please reach out to us. Below you will find the UK/EU line up to date. Registration is open for both events!
