Enhancing Cybersecurity in Public Transportation

Cybersecurity is a significant concern in all industries. Given the rapid adoption of technology in the area of automated and connected vehicles, transportation infrastructure is a particularly attractive target. The concern is so great that in 2013 the Florida Legislature requested the formation of the Florida Center for Cybersecurity1, which named transportation as a key focus area. The goal of this project is to improve the cybersecurity of public transportation systems in Florida. More specifically, the objectives of the research project are to: (1) Identify and mitigate transit cybersecurity liabilities (2) Facilitate ongoing cybersecurity information exchange among Florida transit agencies, their vendors, and cybersecurity researchers
