Transport Cyber

Transport Cyber aims to be a self-help, group participation consultancy site aimed specifically at the transport industry. It is a social site aiming for connections between like-minded enthusiasts that want to ensure a safe, secure travel experience while maintain a high degree of integrity about carbon footprint and how we remain environmentally responsible. We want to bring cyber experts to the forefront in achieving these goals and defending our right to mobility in a green world.

Transport Cyber will start with Heavy Rail Transport. We will feature articles and invite opinion on technology such as ERTMS and GSM-R. We will also talk about HS2 and explore attitudes to franchising in the rail industry.  But if that’s too political we will stick to our main aim which is to share cyber security knowledge, techniques and experiences in meeting obligations to protect the delivery of essential services, develop better, faster, safer and greener transport. Rail at present offers the greatest opportunities to have freedom of movement without an overly large carbon footprint, but as we go on we want to encourage aviation and maritime cyber experts with like aims.

The Transport Cyber Mission


That we believe in cyber maturity doesn’t mean we expect no cyber-attacks. The UK transport industry is the lifeblood of a prosperous, digitally advanced, important country, so people are going to attack us. That’s a fact of modern life

But when someone attacks UK transport, I want them to think of us as the hardest of targets. We’re good at cyber security in the UK. But we need to get even better. 


  • you’re going to have to be pretty good – thanks to our technological improvements and higher cyber security standards across the whole industry, we’ll have made sure that the basic attacks are no longer getting through.
  • if you do get through, there’s an even higher chance we’ll detect you and we’ll be able to advise the government quickly on how best to respond.
  • if you’re attacking a critically important system, you’ll have to get past the state-of-the-art-security we’ve helped the company or department build into the system – and we’ll be working seamlessly with people we already know in the organisation to kick you off the network.
  • and if you’re trying to harm British travellers or our guests,, know that we’ll be out there, early and clearly, telling those affected by the attack what they need to do to deal with it.
  • That means you’ll be able to do less harm. The hardest target for adversaries. Making us the best place to live and work online.
  • That’s our mission. It’s ambitious. Bear with us, because we’ll make it work for the whole country.
