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.
