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.
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.
The 5th 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.
