As vehicles and infrastructure become more connected, our nation’s transportation system faces increasing cybersecurity risks.  To help protect against cyber attacks on this critical sector of the U.S. economy, those producing or managing intelligent mobility technologies traveling over or connected to U.S. roadways must adopt a robust, layered-approach to cybersecurity.

This executive-level ITS America event will bring together key stakeholders to learn about cybersecurity best practices.  Key federal policymakers also will share their thoughts on how to better secure our nation’s surface transportation system.
