About this event

Transport systems have historically been favoured targets for attacks. Their physical security has long been prioritised, with cyber security being a more recent concern. The rapidly changing technology environment is now challenging the way in which all security threats for transport systems need to be considered.

Dr Deeph Chana and Professor Washington Ochieng are hosting a breakfast briefing to introduce and discuss this important subject. Discussion will focus on how a revised method of risk analysis, together with systems engineering and ‘urban laboratories’, is needed to design a more secure and resilient transport system.

Breakfast and networking is available from 08:30am, with the briefings starting at 09:00am. The event closes at 10:00am.
