This webinar occurred on: April 28,, 2016


Railroads are among the oldest industries in the United States, with business processes, support systems and terminology that in some instances are over 100 years old. Railroads also spend significant resources on improving systems, provided it supports their two core stakeholder mandates: Deliver freight on time with maximum economy and operate safely.

This webinar will focus on how the railroad continuously considers and implements security functions as a part of internal and external mandates. The webinar will focus on the implementation of Positive Train Control (PTC), a United States Congressional safety mandate for all large freight railroads as well as most passenger railroads. The webinar will address how physical, information and personnel security all have a very significant part to play in PTC implementation.
