As transport operators continue to digitise their operations to improve communications, signalling, timetabling and passenger experience, they cannot afford to ignore the associated cyber security risks.
Organisations transporting goods and passengers across air, rail, road and sea need to ensure they maintain a strong cybersecurity posture by proactively identifying and addressing risks plus detecting and responding to threats swiftly and effectively.
Key challenges faced by organisations in the transport sector include:
• Maintaining continuity and safety of essential services and operations
• Improving aging and fragmented network infrastructure
• Protecting the personal data of passengers and clients
• Reducing cyber risks across the supply chain
• Balancing smart innovations and security
• Complying with NIS, PCI and GDPR requirements
Security questions organisations in the transportation sector should be asking:
The NIS Regulations require operators of essential services (OESs) to have security measures in place to mitigate cyber risks and protect the critical infrastructure on which we all rely. Many organisations in the transport sector are classified as OESs, and are regularly audited to ensure they are able to manage risks, defend against cyber-attacks and minimise the impact of security incidents.
Airlines, train operators and other private and public transport organisations that accept card payments also need to comply with the requirements of the PCI DSS. These include maintaining a secure network, implementing robust security policies, proactive threat monitoring and vulnerability management.
Any transport operator that processes personal information must also make efforts to protect it from unauthorised processing, loss or destruction under the requirements of the GDPR and DPA 2018. Non-compliance and failure to report breaches within 72 hours could lead to a large fine.
