Transportation Cyber Security (Blended)

Length: Approximately 6 hours.


Data, technology, and Internet of Things (IOT) are playing a prominent role in delivering today’s transportation services.  This is likely to grow significantly as the Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (CAVs) emerge on our highways.  Cybersecurity of data, technology and IOT is essential to ensure safe and reliable transportation services. More public sector agencies and municipalities are being targeted and attacked. Information and operations technology professionals need a practitioner’s perspective to vigilantly address these evolving threats. This course is designed to take a strategic view of these influences, filter it through the practitioner perspective and equip participants to know what to do and what to look for in relation to cybersecurity.

Instructors: Murali Rao and Micah Dalton
