Melbourne, Australia

RISSB and Informa are proud to announce the inaugural RISSB Rail Cyber Security Conference, to be held on the 17th – 18th October, 2017 at the Rendezvous Hotel in Melbourne.

From driverless trains to new signalling systems, the Australian rail industry is embracing automation and digital innovation. With new frontiers come new dangers however, and examples from all over the world show us how crucial cyber security has become for critical infrastructure systems. Infrastructure damage, threats to safety, disruptions, economic loss and data breaches are all possible outcomes from compromised operational technology, and it is these outcomes we wish to address.

Starting annually from 2017, the RISSB Rail Cyber Security Conference will be the industry event to address all your rail cyber security concerns. In 2017 we will lay a foundation to build upon: detailing what threats are present, strategies that can be put into place, why cyber security is so important and what you can do to help. This will be achieved by open discussion and foundational education, examination of Australian case-studies, analysis from experts in the field, and commentary from leading government agencies and representatives.

The Inaugural RISSB Rail Cyber Security Conference will give you the confidence to know that if your systems are compromised, you will know how to respond.
