The European Union Agency for Cybersecurity, ENISA, co-hosted the 3rd General Assembly of the European Rail ISAC (ER-ISAC) on the 26th of June 2020. The event was virtual.

The ISAC (Information Sharing and Analysis Centre) meeting allowed IT professionals from 40 organisations in the rail sector to discuss cybersecurity issues, including challenges and incidents faced over the past year. Experts built on their shared experiences and lessons learned in regard to prominent cybersecurity threats in the rail sector.

The closed-door meeting also included a series of presentations from partners on projects that enhance the sector’s cybersecurity procedures across Europe. Best practices were shared by railway operators, as well as current and future technological and policy developments in the sector. The International Union of Railways (UIC) also gave a welcome speech and reflected on the importance of cybersecurity in the sector. Finally, as an invited guest, EUROCONTROL provided insights on threat tntelligence in the aviation sector.

ENISA has played a significant role in supporting the ER-ISAC from the start, and is currently drafting a study on cybersecurity in the rail sector.
