Airbus Defence and Space Cyber and Alstom, a global leader in sustainable mobility, have signed a worldwide cooperation agreement focussing on rail transport cybersecurity.
The partnership will allow the partners to provide rail operators with solutions and services combining Alstom’s solutions and expertise in rail transport with Airbus CyberSecurity’s services and expertise in ensuring the security of industrial information systems.
“In the context of increasing worldwide cyberthreats across all sectors, Alstom aims to protect its assets and those of its customers as effectively and as early as possible,” says Eddy Thesee, Vice President, Cybersecurity at Alstom. “The collaboration between Alstom and proven specialist Airbus Cybersecurity will ensure the future usage and success of green mobility worldwide.”
“As specialists in the cybersecurity of industrial systems, particularly in the transport sector, we are keen to contribute to securing the information systems of the rail sector along with Alstom,” said Nicolas Razy, Director of Airbus CyberSecurity France.
Airbus CyberSecurity will contribute to joint offers with services and solutions in security monitoring of railway systems through its various Security Operations Centres (SOCs) and in responding to incidents. It will also contribute to security auditing services and penetration and intrusion testing, notably through its simulation and testing platform for industrial systems, CyberRange.
Alstom is bringing its knowledge of railway systems design, manufacture, operations and maintenance into the partnership. The global leader in digital rail will also leverage its unique railway cybersecurity expertise developed in recent years.Click below to share this article
