Railroads & Cybersecurity

To help ensure the security of their information technology networks and systems, America’s major railroads take proactive and multi-faceted steps to prevent, respond to and build resiliency against cyber threats.

Implementing security programs guided by internationally recognized standards, railroads perform thorough assessments of potential vulnerabilities; implement protective countermeasures; and recruit and train specialized cybersecurity staff. Even the most effective cybersecurity plans and procedures will falter if useful information on cyber threats is not shared, which is why timely and comprehensive intelligence and information sharing between government security agencies and railroads is essential if cybersecurity efforts are to succeed.
