US TSA to issue new cybersecurity directive for passenger transport services

US' Department of Homeland Security (DHS) secretary Alejandro N. Mayorkas confirmed (06-Oct-2021) the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) plans to issue a new cybersecurity directive for passenger rail and transit services in 2021. Mr Mayorkas said: "To strengthen the cybersecurity of our railroads and rail transit, TSA will issue a new security directive this year that will cover higher-risk railroad and rail transit entities and require them to identify a cybersecurity point person; report incidents to CISA; and put together a contingency and recovery plan in case they become a victim of malicious cyber activity. We are coordinating and consulting with industry as we develop all of these plans". [more - original PR]
