This course is based upon the new railway cyber security specific CENELEC standards, TS50701 and best practice from other OT and IT Cyber security standards such as ISO27001, IEC 624423 and the Australian Standard® AS 7770 Rail Cyber Security.

Key Learning Objectives

  • What is Cyber Security? – putting it into the context of railway and transportation
  • Identify the threats and vulnerabilities (such as cyber security, safety and availability)
  • Develop mitigation actions for threats and vulnerabilities and recovery from potential consequences
  • Cyber Security – What standards are available for dealing with threats
  • An understanding of how TS70101 can improve cyber security across the entire railway

About the Course

‘If it is not secure, it is unlikely to be safe’:
UK Department for Transport

The railway sector is facing a new challenge: the Network Information Security (NIS) regulations. According to a 2020 survey by the European Union Agency for Cybersecurity (ENISA), only 33% of rail operators of essential services (OES) have fully implemented defensive measures against cyber-attacks, as recommended by NIS regulations. This places their software under serious threat – not to mention their compliance with regulations.

When security breaches occur the ripple effect throughout an organisation can be vast, with implications that are both financial and personal. There may also be implications concerning system safety and resilience.

This course is an introduction to the major themes of cyber security and will start you on a journey to the creation of a secure rail operation. You will be able to communicate effectively, make informed trade-offs, assess risk, improve defences, and reduce vulnerabilities in your systems.

This course is based upon the new railway cyber security specific CENELEC standards, TS50701 and best practice from other OT and IT Cyber security standards such as ISO27001, IEC 624423 and the Australian Standard® AS 7770 Rail Cyber Security.

Our experts will answer questions and provide advice throughout the course via interactive live online sessions and the learning management system.

Who Will Benefit

This blended course is for railway business leaders, managers, railway inspectors, railway legislators, safety professionals, planners, Information Technology (IT) professionals, resilience specialists and railway engineers tasked with making decisions that could impact the cyber resilience of technical and organisational systems.

The course is focused more towards railway Operational technology (OT) however IT issues are also covered also in terms of their security risks and strategies from ISO27001. No prior knowledge is required of cyber security for this course
