Global experts will gather mid-February 2019 to discuss the threat of cyber security through a series of presentations and case study evaluations during the annual two-day summit. This year’s event is scheduled to take place in Amsterdam, The Netherlands at the Crowne-Plaza hotel and will feature open discussions on managing threats and potential security solutions within the railway sector and rail 4.0 supply chain.

The list of topic to be addressed includes:

 -The integration and convergence of IT and OT
– How to manage and mitigate the risk of cyber threat
– Managing supply chain and third party risk
– Identifying and addressing blind spots
– Innovations in detection and mitigation
– Configuration management
– Incorporating resilience into information systems
– Critical control system components

“This event will give those working in and around the industry the knowledge they need to ensure they have the right tools to incorporate resilience into information systems, critical control system components and business processes throughout their organisation,” Cyber Senate founder James Nesbitt said.

“2015’S Project Honeytrain – a ‘honeytrap’ exercise which attracted 2.7 million cyber attacks to a virtual rail infrastructure in just six weeks – showed just how considerable the appetite is for attacking our railways in this way,” he added. “And with hackers becoming more ever more sophisticated, it is essential that those working in the industry ensure that they stay one step ahead – optimising the technical performance of often neglected rail infrastructure and taking a ‘macro’ view, which considers the many risk channels facing rail infrastructure, including supply chains.
