Department for Transport Head of Cyber Security provides Keynote on Rail Cyber Security Summit in London

Key Note Presentation Achieving Cyber Security – The Government’s Role in Partnership with Industry
On March 14th and 15th in London the Cyber Senate will host its 2nd Annual Rail Cyber Security Summit, addressing cyber risk, safety and threats to rail infrastructure globally. 
With key presenters and panellists from DFT, TFL, London Underground, Network Rail, ICS ISAC, SNCF, DB Netz, Thales, RSSB, NS Dutch Railways, the Go Ahead Group, Acalvio Technologies, Power Standards Lab and many more, the Summit will provide a unique opportunity for asset owners and cyber subject matters to convene and create actionable dialogue.

"Transport in Europe provides for the movement needs of over 700 million people and associated freight." And that is just Europe. The Keynote Presentation, provided by Stephen Cummins, Head of Rail Cyber Security, DFT, United Kingdom, participants will have the unique opportunity to hear first hand about the "The Government’s Role in Partnership with Industry." 
Taking place at 9:10am - 9:50am Mar 14 at the Millennium Gloucester Hotel in London, this is your opportunity to hear how Government and industry are working together to achieve this and what more needs to be done. 
Details ° Cyber remains one of the top threats to the UK’s economic and national security. Like much of the UK’s national infrastructure, the transport sector is a potential target for cyber attack. ° The National Cyber Security Strategy for 2016-21 sets out an ambitious approach to achieve security in cyber space. This is based on defending people and businesses, deterring adversaries and developing skills and capabilities. ° The Government can’t do this alone – citizens, business and organisations have a part to play. This is particularly true for the rail sector, where several organisations are involved in the operation of a safe, secure and reliable railway network. ° The Government wants this network to be secured against cyber attacks and to gain assurance that necessary action is being taken to identify, manage and mitigate cyber risks.     


The Department for Transport Head of Cyber Security will also contribute to the Cyber Senate panel session including Network Rail and RSSB on "Government and Industry- Creating a Culture of Awareness." Panellists will answer questions such as: 
° How are industry and Government working together to create a culture of awareness? 
° What is working best for you in your area of responsibility?
° What is the one change you would make if you had no limits to improve awareness of cyber security?

Furthermore, industry leaders including the DFT will also contribute to
