This session will examine what tools are available to assist transportation leaders in assessing, identifying and mitigating cybersecurity threats and attacks against critical transportation assets and systems.  As we automate and adopt to a world of sensors, big data, improved connectivity, digital cities, connected vehicles, and grater mobility there is an increasing risk from those who wish to play havoc with or totally disrupt our transportation systems. The good news is there are more tools and best practices being created to combat this growing threat. This session will discuss these tools, policies, and where to go for assistance before, during or after an attack.
