Comments Sought on Cyber Security Standard

The APTA Control and Communications Work Group has issued for public comment the first part of a recommended practice on rail system control room and communications security (cyber security). Comments are due by Nov. 15.

Part I is an assessment tool that addresses the importance of control and communications security within a transit agency, providing a road map to develop a successful program including risk assessment and risk management. Part II, which is to follow, will define specific implementation steps necessary to establish security countermeasures, a security plan, and many other facets of security control.

The announcement and comment document can be found on the APTA standards web site.
