While it may be easy to assume that rail cybersecurity is a concern for new systems and focuses on security requirements at the system procurement stage, the reality is that existing rail systems, or the installed base, were often not designed with security in mind. These systems are vulnerable to cyber threats and require additional attention and investment to secure them. By investing in cybersecurity solutions, organizations can proactively protect their systems and data and maintain the safety and security of their rail infrastructure.
When it comes to purchasing cybersecurity for existing rail systems, there are several key steps that organizations can follow to ensure they make an informed decision. Over the years, Cylus has seen customers typically undergo four phases in their buying process and successfully purchase rail cybersecurity. These steps include Project Identification, Vendor Review and Partner Identification, a Tender Process (optional), and Deployment. We’ve documented the process in hopes of benefiting others in their buying process and ensuring the protection of rail systems against cyber threats.
