DEEP DIVE ROUNDTABLES

FLICKING THE SWITCH ON YOUR TRANSPORT SECURITY PROGRAM

Future transport is led by mobility, connectivity and integration with smart cities. Increasingly more cities, towns and regionals areas are part of mega hubs that move people from A to B. In this terrain, managing transport security is critical for planners, operators and service
providers. This roundtable is tailored for transport security professionals and executives seeking to gain an understanding of proactive security planning and implementation.

IDENTIFYING RISK & FORMULATING A ROBUST SECURITY STRATEGY

With increased customer demand of access to real-time information, there has been a convergence of information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT) in essential sectors like transport, critical infrastructure and manufacturing. This has led to new opportunities to modernise our cities and dramatically improve our public services, but it also opens up new and complex challenges when it comes to information security.

New solutions are being built on top of legacy systems, which were designed without needing to consider the risks of two-way communication or processing information from untrusted sources.

How much reliance can we place on our historical threat models and assessments of risk? Are processes and mitigation strategies up to date in today’s data-driven world of increased information flows?
