Cybersecurity is critical for the public transport sector. Transport systems often involve large amounts of sensitive data, including personal information of passengers and employees. This makes them a target for cyber-attacks. They are also vital infrastructure, and disruptions caused by cyber-attacks can have serious consequences for the safety and reliability of the services.
Meanwhile, the increasing use of technology in public transport, such as automated systems and smart payment systems, also increases the potential vulnerabilities to cyber-attacks. Ensuring the security of these systems is essential for the continued success and growth of the public transport sector.
