Reminder: CYRAIL Final Conference on 18 September 2018 in Paris

The CYRail Final Conference will be held at UIC HQ, 16 rue Jean Rey in Paris on 18 September from 9 am to 4.30 pm.

The day-long conference will be an opportunity to learn how to address cybersecurity in the rail system:

  • What are the threats?
  • How can risks be assessed?
  • How are attacks targeting rail systems detected?
  • How can the consequences be mitigated and what are the countermeasures available?
  • What resilience mechanisms are available?

The final recommendations from the project will be presented by the consortium members and the audience will include rail infrastructure managers and public transport operators, rail manufacturers (rolling stock and signalling), ICT integration companies, standardisation bodies, policymakers and researchers.
