Recently, a regional commuter carrier rail service had improvements made to their overall physical and cybersecurity after undergoing a vulnerability assessment performed by RPI Group. The assessment is based on NIST framework and previous DoD experience. Getting to this successful result required an identified need, funding for the project and the ability to implement the required changes. This case study will be presented from three different perspectives: risk mitigation, management and implementation. Representatives from RPI Group will discuss how participants working together led the team to success with this type of project, plus touch on the problems faced and how such problems were overcome for a successful result.
1. Define vulnerability assessments
2. Learn the process behind security improvements
3. Explain the problems faced and how such problems were met with solutions
4. Discuss what happens after a vulnerability assessment is performed
