FTA Publishes Cybersecurity Resources for Transit Agencies

  • Date: April 21, 2022

FTA published Cybersecurity Resources to support transit agencies during a time of unprecedented ransomware attacks targeting the transportation sector. We encourage you to share these resources widely with your networks. Please share feedback to FTASafetyStakeholder@dot.gov.

There are a number of other resources that transit agencies can explore to get started on understanding cybersecurity:

National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST): NIST resources include a Cybersecurity Framework, voluntary guidance based on existing standards, guidelines and practices for organizing to better manage and reduce cybersecurity risk.

Transportation Security Administration (TSA): TSA resources include a Surface Transportation Cybersecurity Toolkit that provides cybersecurity information to surface transportation operators with fewer than 1,000 employees.

Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA): CISA resources include a Cyber Essentials Starter Kit and how to report cyber incidents such as phishing and malware to CISA.
