How digital resilience goes beyond cyber security

Cyber security is often associated with the protection of IT, servers and data but we see this as only part of the wider picture.

True digital resilience looks at the interfaces between information networks, physical assets and the passengers and staff who use and maintain day-today services.

Our Digital Resilience service team helps clients across the rail industry to understand the security implications of digitally connected systems and then help them protect against incidents that could inflict significant costs and disruption upon their organisation.

How we can support your digital resilience strategy

By applying best practices and standards from the transport sector - and further afield, such as government, financial services and national utilities  - we can provide objective assessments of your current resilience strategies and determine whether existing controls are proportionate to the risks you face.

Services include Digital Risk Assessments performed by teams of rail domain and cyber security experts to appraise current security measures, and specialist support to help you meet the requirements of the Directive on the Security of Network and Information Systems (NIS-D) and protect your organisation from financial penalties.
