As transportation systems continue to adapt and evolve with technological advances, cybersecurity has become a major concern for agencies around the world. Transportation systems are an enticing target for attackers and terrorists due to the massive impacts and widespread harm that could occur.
The Center for Urban Transportation Research is involved in several aspects of cybersecurity research, including collaborating with Cyber Florida. We continue to adapt to reflect the changes in technology to create safe, reliable transportation networks.
- Create or provide feedback on procedures and policies that agencies can use to perform cybersecurity reviews
- Create or analyze agency vulnerability disclosure processes
- Evaluate various software systems within the transportation ecosystem (e.g., mobile fare payment applications, traffic controllers) for potential security vulnerabilities
- Identify liabilities and facilitate ongoing cybersecurity information exchanges with transit agencies, vendors, and researchers
- Evaluate sources and risks for connected vehicles infrastructure and improve the cybersecurity of connected vehicles deployments and recommendations of mitigation measures
- Showcase demonstrations to illustrate threats and mitigation measures for connected vehicles infrastructure (e.g., road-side units, traffic controllers)
