Railway infrastructures are moving towards more intelligent, connected, user-centric and collaborative systems.
The current developments within railway focus on providing more services to passengers. Examples are on-board entertainment, real-time schedules and tools to plan trips using intermodal transports. While these developments bring many advantages for the industry and its users, they also present new opportunities for cyber-criminals and terrorists.
Cybersecurity in the railway sector (CYRail) is a project within Shift2Rail. The CYRail project is identifying not only the IT security risks, but also appropriate methods for addressing them, including specifications and recommendations for secure modern rail systems design and operation. The scope of the project is limited to focus only on cybersecurity.
