About Secure Rail Conference

Rail Security Begins Here

Protecting rail freight, assets and passengers requires diligence. Knowing we cannot continue to secure our infrastructure with the solutions of yesterday has led itself to the inception of the only rail conference in North America focused on security. Secure Rail began in 2015. Each year, the conference cultivates experts in critical infrastructure, cyber security and individuals presenting new technology advancements – all working toward a common goal...to bridge the gap between technology and security.

Session Topics Include:

  • Critical Infrastructure
  • Cyber Security
  • Emergency Preparedness
  • Hazmat Transportation
  • Intermodal Security
  • New Technology Advancements
  • Positive Train Control
  • Vulnerability Assessments

Railway threats will continue to pose a challenge. The only way to confront our anxieties about security is through education, persistence and collaboration. Secure Rail presents practice measures and proven solutions. It lays the groundwork for an actionable discourse. Secure Rail is a meeting of necessity.

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.
