In the rail industry, the majority of equipment installed tends to have a long product lifecycle. Take for example your central Communications Control Unit (CCU), they will last up to 10 years on average and are considered to be a valuable asset, handling the communication between the train and shoreside infrastructure. Although the CCU and other on-train devices come equipped with static security controls built-in, not one single security control can be considered effective and therefore, a layered approach known as defence in depth is required to protect important assets. Businesses are now looking for new ways to protect critical assets and essential services from malicious actors by ensuring that threats are quickly identified, reviewed and effectively controlled.
