Alstom and Airbus sign an agreement to fortify cybersecurity in transport systems

The increase in cyberattacks and the expansion of the Internet of Things and Big Data require new measures to protect transport systems. In response to this challenge, Alstom and Airbus have entered into an agreement that will support the emergence of a new risk management model adapted to the evolution of the transport industry.

In particular, the program will focus on the co-development of new analysis services concerning the vulnerability of transport systems, new shared core protection technologies and the definition of a new generation of operational security centers adapted to the industrial sector. Alstom will offer its customers products that comply with the latest legislation and governmental specifications, and will be able to propose audits of their customers’ existing solutions to increase protection levels.

“We are proud to cooperate with Airbus, the world leader in aviation, on this program, which will provide operators with innovative and efficient cybersecurity solutions for safer transport. This cooperation is fully in line with our ambition to be the precursor of the field of railway cybersecurity,” said Pascal Cléré.
