Reliability and availability of vehicles which maintain high utilization rates over multiple decades such as trains, airplanes, vessels can often be affected by software vulnerabilities that permit malware such as NotPetya to impact operations. Mckenney will discuss best practices for manufacturers, integrators and operators to treat this risk by discussing and providing examples of how a Cyber Design for Availability (CDfR) Program assures multi-decade asset resilience; increasing asset-utilization and reducing defects, time-to-roll out, and operational costs.
1. Discuss why trains can be easily affected by software vulnerabilities
2. Define and provide examples of Cyber Design for Reliability and Availability (CDfR) programs
3. Assess CDfR programs' strategic importance to transportation manufacturers, integrators and operators
4. Provide examples of how a CDfR programs assures multi-decade asset resilience
