An effective transportation system is key to New York’s economic viability and quality of life. Moving people and goods in a state whose components range from urbanized centers to rural roadways is a challenge. All aspects of our daily lives are impacted…from our ability to compete in the national and global marketplaces…to how we commute to work or where we buy homes…to the way we work and play. That’s why we must utilize existing capacities of New York’s transportation infrastructure network to the greatest extent possible. Intelligent Transportation Systems do just that.

Applying the NIST Framework to Transportation Systems

Date: Tuesday, February 9th and Wednesday, February 10th, 2021

Time: 1:00pm–3:30pm EST (both days)

Instructors: Ray Murphy, ITS Specialist, FHWA & Ed Fok, Transportation Technologies Specialist, FHWA


Course Details:

This course is designed for State and local highway agencies and private sector firms that support planning and project implementation related to intelligent transportation systems (ITS) with an understanding of cybersecurity fundamentals. The objective of this course is to provide transportation professionals with the foundation to begin cyber initiatives or improve existing programs within their transportation organization.

Participants will learn the foundations for applying the NIST cybersecurity framework to their organization in the form of a case study. Within the training series, they will learn about the contributions of the NIST Cybersecurity Framework and how cyber threats impact an agency’s infrastructure and operations. The NIST Framework is presented as a set of standards, guidelines, and best practices that participants can apply to their own case study considerations.
