Cyber Security and Data Governance
The world is seeing an exponential growth in consumer and industry data, triggered by rapid developments in digitalisation such as an increase in the use of Internet-of-Things (IoT) and data-generating devices including smartphones and connected wearables.
Cyber security and data governance is a current and growing challenge that public transport organisations from large to small must recognise and take appropriate action to mitigate.
Every transport company must protect their customers’ data and also attest to that in a comprehensible and credible manner. The more transparently customers can comprehend how the passenger data administration processes the collected data, the more willing they will be to use digital services.
Proactive and holistic approach
With the unprecedented pace and complexity of cyber attacks, and the increasing digitalisation of the sector, public transport organisations must be proactive and adopt a holistic approach at the strategic level to protect its critical information and systems and to fulfil its obligation to its customers.
UITP is leading the studies on these topics and has published reports on data governance and cyber security. IT-TRANS will invite the world’s leading experts in cyber security and data governance.
