Airbus and Alstom to Improve Rail Transport Cybersecurity

Airbus CyberSecurity has signed a worldwide cooperation agreement with Alstom that focuses on rail transport cybersecurity.

The partnership will provide rail operators with services that combine Alstoms solutions and expertise in rail transport with Airbus CyberSecuritys expertise in ensuring the security of industrial information systems.

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.

The company will also contribute to security auditing services and penetration and intrusion testing, notably through its simulation and testing platform for industrial systems, CyberRange.

"As specialist 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.

Alstom is bringing its knowledge of railway systems design, manufacture, operations and maintenance into the partnership. The company will also leverage its unique railway cybersecurity expertise developed in recent years.

Worldwide, Alstom counts over 13,000 employees working on digitalisation in the rail sector, particularly in the areas of signalling technology, smart mobility and cybersecurity.

In recent years, railway companies have developed ambitious digital strategies, particularly to cope with the growing number of passengers. They have deployed and interconnected information systems combining IT, operational technology (OT) and the Internet of Things (IoT) in the management and control systems of trains, metros and trams, track signalling systems and rail operations control centres.

In the context of increasing worldwide cyber threats across all sectors, Alstom aims to protect its assets and those of its customers as effectively and as early as possible, said 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.
