As the name of our online portal suggests, Transport Security World attempts to report the major issues related to safeguarding transport across the globe. Many of the threats posed by hackers, attackers and others whom wage war against transport networks – be they in the air, on the track or on the water – will be well-known to many, but what of the emerging threats that don’t get the coverage they deserve, how do we hear about those?
We attempt to shine a light on those lesser-reported developments with the latest Industry Guide from Transport Security World, compiled with our sister title, SmartRail World. Issue #31 – Understanding the key threats and trends in transport safety and security – contains seven chapters of features, news and insights that address the latest threats to rail, autonomous vehicles, freight and aerospace that adds some context to the challenges faced on a daily basis by those employees and passengers in the affected industries.
Kicking off the features, Transport Security World is thrilled to have Digi International contributing, as the communications and technology specialist looks into the huge task ahead with the roll out of positive train control (PTC), specifically the development, installation and implementation required for the advanced train control system. Also featured are articles on the pervasive threat of cyberattacks targeting the Middle East, the security drone that takes heavy inspiration from a galaxy far, far away and an interview with someone fighting to bring the voice of true experts to the conversation around transport security, Kristina Tanasichuk.
We hope you enjoy the issue!
