About this event

In association with the Institution of Railway Signal Engineers.

Modern signalling systems are becoming increasingly dependent on data networking and commercial computing technologies in order to meet the demands of the modern railway.  However, these technologies, whose origins are firmly seeped in the insecurities of the modern Internet, bring risks that need careful consideration during their adoption within the safety-conscious environment of railway control.

This talk will investigate some of the security risks surrounding the adoption of Internet like computing technologies within the signalling environment and will examine some of the practical security issues that need to be considered.  The need for defence-in-depth security approach will be discussed and the different approaches of security verses safety practitioners will be assessed.

Speaker: Bryan Drew.
