Connecting the Dots – Transport Data and Cyber Security
|Threats to transport data are escalating by the hour. This is true for personal data on transport Apps such as the hack of 57 million Uber accounts. This risk is also very real for all other operators and authorities.
The concept of “Smart Cities” revolves around the interconnection of different operators from domains of activity such as transport, energy, health and infrastructure, who all rely on Information and Communication Technology (ICT) systems to collect, retrieve, process, and exchange data in order to improve their services and the quality of life of citizens.
To date, the focus was more on interoperability and less so on safeguarding data. Given the escalating threats, Cyber Security has therefore become an area of vital interest for ITS professionals.
This poses the challenge: How do we “connect the dots” and do so safely and securely?
This workshop will explore the action steps towards a Virtual Transport Data Warehouse. We need find ways to move to a situation in the transport and data management area where the whole is more than the sum of the parts.
Delegates will earn a full CPDS point from this workshop.
The workshop will be hosted in Gauteng area on 14 February 2018. Please diarise the date.
- If you believe you can contribute to this topic, you are cordially invited to submit an abstract (no more than half a page) to do a presentation. The deadline for abstracts is 13 December.
