Transportation Ransomware Prevention

Apply a great cybersecurity strategy and mitigate cyber threats with access control and active monitoring solutions

Transportation Ransomware Prevention

Industry Evolution

With the ever-present and continuous evolution of threats in the Transportation Industry, new challenges appear for the sector. Previous standalone or ‘air-gapped’ systems need to change their business objectives by improving efficiency, meeting compliance requirements, and lowering their cost. Cybersecurity In Transportation, is now a shifting parameter where the implementation of the Internet of Things (IoT) and Intelligent Transporation Systems (ITS) begin to be adapted and integrated with transportation infrastructure. Internet connectivity with the world has brought new cybersecurity frameworks that affect the global transportation industry.

For Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) the transportation sector comprises seven sub-sectors: Aviation, Mass Transit and Passenger Rail, Pipeline Systems, Highway and Motor Carrier, Maritime Transportation System, Freight Rail, and Postal and Shipping. Needless to say the vast array of this sector, its interconnectivity, and its impact on global commerce and trade, make it a very tempting target for rogue agents and cybercriminals.

Control Systems Vulnerabilities Within IT Transportation Infrastrucutre

Many critical systems are left to obscure legacy systems without any true digital transformation changes. Now as technology and innovation change many aspects of cybersecurity in transportation sector have seen a rise of more interconnected pathways and operational changes. The developing market has made it clear that corporate networks, business systems, and other frameworks broadcast even more gaps and access areas where weaknesses may be exploited.

An increase in modern transportation IT operations means an increase in users and applications. The IT transportation challenges focus on control system vulnerabilities. Administrative accounts are actively used to access and extract data. Management of large operations for businesses requires numerous privileged or administrative accounts and even 3rd party contractors to access the network’s critical systems, whether it’s on-premise or remotely.

This makes it difficult to manage these accounts and provides an adequate oversight monitoring system. Furthermore, Transportation Ransomware Prevention strategy needs to support and maintain the large and vast connections within OT and IT transportation systems. Remote access must be visible and allow administrators to intervene at any given moment, mitigating any intentional or unintentional compromise of the business infrastructure while establishing controlled and secured access to system components.

Unauthorized access to any system can cause disruption to industry operations such as data exfiltration, denial of service operations to damage of internal systems. Control systems, as well as privileged users, are at great risk of compromise. Strategic solutions need to be met by transportation organizations to mitigate and prevent exploitation through privileged credentials to vital assets. Furthermore, the transportation sectors must maintain their cybersecurity standards with integrated IT components and govern compliance with comprehensive and proficient oversight to all system components and resources.
