Data protection and privacy
The public transport sector is seeing a boom in the range and amount of data which is being produced. Managing that data requires complex technical solutions, particularly in terms of data analysis from multiple sources (Big Data). Data analysis and data mining, Big Data, diagnostics and so on are relatively new competences in the public transport sector but becoming increasingly central to operations, maintenance, network planning, human resources; indeed most areas of the business. And as data takes centre stage, issues such as data protection, privacy and cyber security are necessary considerations, both in terms of legal compliance as well as ensuring a solid reputation among customers. Companies offering services in these areas will exhibit at IT-TRANS.
