  • How to build better resilience in order to protect our operational technology systems

    With a ten-fold increase in cyber security attacks in the last few years, public transport must identify and implement better ways to build better resilience to protect our operational technology. There is a range of approaches that organisations can use to mitigate the risks and increase their resilience, such as cyber security by design, zero trust, endpoint detection and response.

    This session will highlight several practical approaches that are currently being used to help organisations improve the resilience of their operational technology systems.
