Digitisation has led to the transport sector becoming more and more interconnected. Most of the time, transport services are centralised. However, this centralised architecture increases the vulnerability to cyber attacks. To tackle this issue, the EU-funded CitySCAPE project will improve cybersecurity within multimodal transport. The project will produce a modular software toolkit, whose purpose is fourfold. First, it will detect suspicious traffic and data flows. Second, it will evaluate the technical and financial impact of a cyber attack. Third, it will enhance the predictability of zero-day attacks. Last but not least, it will train relevant authorities and improve the circulation of information among them. Eventually, the CitySCAPE solution will be validated in regional-level pilots in Tallinn (Estonia) and Genoa (Italy) by transport operators and cybersecurity organisations, who will also be trained in using the project tools.
