Cybersecurity in rail freight webinar

Cybersecurity is about much more than systems – it is not just a technology problem but about taking a holistic approach and looking at all aspects of your business, especially people. This was the theme of the RFG webinar on cybersecurity, 20 April 2021.

Emma Bradford, Head of Behavioural Psychology Unit at Frazer-Nash Consultancy, explained that it is important to establish organisational resilience from a people and process point of view. The consultancy has developed the PREPARE model: preside, resource, educate, publicise, acclimatise, rehearse, evaluate.

Marie Hill, Chief Transformation and Digitalisation Officer, DB Cargo, talked about the importance of
making cyber security fun, memorable and engaging in order to ensure all members of staff understand their own role in maintaining safe systems.

Daniel Jaeggi, Head of Business Development, Razorsecure explained that as rail systems are increasingly being digitised and connectivity is being added, this greatly increases cybersecurity risks. He said that while safety has been integral to the rail industry for many years, many companies are not prepared for the potential problems the increased connectivity and digitisation will bring.
