Railway threats continue to arise in different shapes and forms posing a permanent challenge for the rail system. When it comes to protecting passengers, freight, staff, trains and stations, railways cannot continue to secure their infrastructure with the solutions of yesterday.
The first step toward protection is education that lends itself to a better understanding of the changing cultural, social, technological and economic environment pertaining to railways. Dealing and responding to potential threats today range from daily crimes (pick-pocketing, vandalism) to more sophisticated threats (cybercrime, terrorism) and require a true comprehensive and collaborative approach.
Secure Rail is the only conference that addresses North American rail security from an organizational perspective on both physical and cyber security. Conference sessions will feature strategies and insights from industry experts on how to manage employees, passengers, technology and assets, and protect them from man-made threats and dangers.
In addition to 20+ in-depth conference sessions, the event offers plentiful networking opportunities and a chance for members of freight, transit and commuter rail communities to convene on gold standards, best practices, trends and issues affecting the security of railroad. Secure Rail's product showcase provides access to leading suppliers, tabletop exhibits and solutions to a variety of safety and security challenges.
The 3rd annual Secure Rail Conference brings together the stakeholders in surface transportation security — U.S. government agencies, industry trade organizations, rail organizations, shippers and suppliers to discuss the latest risks and threats to physical and cyber security, and how to safeguard your organization from these threats. If you have responsibility for railroad security, emergency preparedness, hazmat transportation, positive train control, IT, signaling and communication, border control, bridges and tunnels management, capital infrastructure programs, it's in your best interest to attend Secure Rail.
