Passenger rail systems are inherently open without the security and screening obstacles passengers encounter at airports, causing them to be prime, soft target locations for criminal or terrorist activity. To help ensure the safety of the billions of people traveling by passenger rail each year, the industry has put a critical focus on countering these threats. Evolving technologies are enabling passenger rail operators to observe, screen and detect threat actors before they can act. During this session, we will discuss in-depth the leading security technologies that advance the ability of operators to identify risks, mitigate threats and minimize vulnerabilities.
1. Build a stronger understanding of the risks, threats and vulnerabilities facing the modern passenger rail industry
2. Gain insight to the latest technologies that are changing the way operators manage and mitigate the increasing threat of targeted violence at soft-target venues
3. Learn how to use new technology purposefully and creatively to advance your security posture
4. Identify ways to build a more robust, complete security risk management system that protects your passenger rail customers, staff and physical assets
