AVENTRA - Digital Resilience

AVENTRA - Digital Resilience
21 May 2019

Working in partnership with Roke Manor Research Ltd, a leading UK innovator in cyber security and communications, we are helping Bombardier’s in-house teams undertake an in-depth assessment of the AVENTRA's exposure to a range of possible cyber threats – from espionage to remote hacking – and to evaluate the potential impact on its operation.

Bombardier's AVENTRA was introduced to the UK network in 2017 and will become increasingly familiar to the country’s commuters as it is added to fleets serving the south west, eastern and the west midlands regions.

To provide confidence that the vehicle can provide the highest standards of security against current and emerging threats, Bombardier commissioned the Ricardo-Roke team to produce a full appraisal of the AVENTRA's digital security risk profile, and provide confidence that the vehicle can provide the highest standards of security against emerging digital threats.



As part of the assignment, we will benchmark against current industry standards and national legislation, includes the Network and Information Systems Directive (NIS Regulations), as well as well-defined practices from sources such as National Institute of Standards and Technology, Certified Information Systems Security Professional, and previous vulnerability and risk reviews conducted by Roke for the UK Ministry of Defence.

Once the investigations are complete, Bombardier will be provided with a full risk-based assessment of the AVENTRA, accompanied by recommendations that identify vulnerabilities and mitigate risks in an appropriate way, incorporated into Bombardier’s existing risk management practices.
