Defending Critical Infrastructure against Geopolitical Threat, an Amtrak point of view on Extended Detection & Response

  • date_range Wednesday, June 8
  • schedule 3:45 PM - 4:15 PM
  • place Woodrow Wilson A

Investments in cybersecurity and IT resource resiliency continue to be a need at Amtrak to support the critical infrastructure areas Amtrak is steward over – Transportation, Energy, and Emergency Services. This has been heightened by rising geopolitical threats. Amtrak must ensure that when there is a cyber-based incident, they can detect it, stop it, eradicate it, and recover with minimal impact to the business. In this session, delivered jointly with global MSS, MDR and consulting leader Trustwave, the speakers will discuss Amtrak's journey toward Extended Detection and Response during an increasingly risky time, and what that means for Amtrak and other critical infrastructure organizations.
