Cybersecurity for railways

Secure your railway infrastructure


Digital transformation is bringing substantial benefits in railway safety, operational efficiency and reliability, as well as an enhanced passenger experience. Yet, it also inevitably increases the vulnerability of railways to cyberthreats. 

This means that the continued protection of rail infrastructure will require stronger and more robust railway communications network security, with new technological and process measures being implemented.


Railway infrastructure is under attack

Hardly a day goes by without the media reporting a cybersecurity incident or exposure of a risk somewhere in the world. Not only are attacks becoming ever-more sophisticated, but the potential damage that can result is growing, even physical damage to critical railway infrastructure such as signaling systems.

Railway infrastructure can ill afford any successful cyberattacks. Not just financial loss is at stake; lives can be put in jeopardy.

Solution elements

Nokia offers an advanced and comprehensive approach built on its long experience and in-depth expertise of both security and mission critical networks and operations.
