SECURING THE TRANSPORTATION SECTOR IN THE DIGITAL AGE

Nozomi Networks enables transportation companies secure OT and IoT architectures and reveals its key solutions into how regional transportation and logistics companies can secure operations in the digital age . Thales , another leader in the cybersecurity transportation field , has revealed its connected and cybersecure solution which will improve interoperability for airlines and pilots and optimise flight paths to help reduce the carbon footprint of airline operations .
ozomi Networks ,

N a global leader in Operational Technology ( OT ) and Internet of Things ( IoT ) security , has demonstrated the breadth of its portfolio comprising leading OT and IoT security solutions and how its technologies can secure modern transportation .

Cybercriminals can create immediate havoc by targeting OT networks and IT devices used for critical transportation infrastructure . Global companies like Maersk , Metropolitan Transportation Authority and Matson have all experienced catastrophic attacks in the recent past . Transportation and
Bachir Moussa , Regional Director MEAR at Nozomi Networks logistics companies are highly targeted by cyber adversaries as they have more business revenues and reputation at stake . According to Gartner , by 2025 , cyberattackers will have weaponised Operational Technology ( OT ) environments to successfully harm or kill humans .
Bachir Moussa , Regional Director MEAR at Nozomi Networks , said : “ Threats to the OT / IT environment are at the peak . It is now more critical than ever to put in place nimble security controls in your cybersecurity architecture , especially in the transportation industry . Today , everything is reliant on technology and increasingly tech leaders in the transportation industry are making OT / IT security a top priority . From recent incidents , we know perpetrators will do whatever it takes to cause irrevocable harm to transportation organisations .”
Nozomi Networks offers a scalable , cloud-based SaaS solution , Vantage , as well as other key solutions from its portfolio . Critical infrastructure defences are maturing significantly – thanks , in part , to progress when it comes to public and private cooperative efforts aimed at tightening defences – and Nozomi Networks has made a significant contribution to this awareness with innovative security solutions . Additionally , government guidelines , mandates and legislation in combination with self-governance at the sector level will help establish and enforce a standard baseline for critical infrastructure cybersecurity .
Thales , a global technology leader offering cybersecurity solutions to the transportation sector , has been selected by Airbus to equip its commercial airliners with the most powerful and innovative flight management system on the market .
The new flight management system ( FMS ), which is based on the PureFlyt product and has been adapted to meet the specific needs of Airbus , will be developed by Thales to equip Airbus commercial airliners – and in particular the A320 , A330 and A350 – with service entry planned for the end of 2026 .
With its expertise in avionics , connectivity and cybersecurity and air traffic management , Thales is the only European company to offer endto-end onboard and ground-based solutions that help to meet the ambitious objectives of optimising flight operations in terms of the air transport sector ’ s carbon footprint .
The new system will improve interoperability for airlines and pilots and optimise flight paths to help reduce the carbon footprint of airline operations .
