Investigating the Cyber Security of Railway Systems

I am an Industrial Fellow at the University of Birmingham, working on industry-funded projects from low maturity TRL levels to developing ‘ready to deploy’ solutions.

My Ph.D. Thesis investigated the cyber security of the UK and European rail signalling system, ERTMS. This Thesis was jointly supervised by Tom Chothia and Mark Ryan.

Current Work

Following from my Thesis, it was clear that the landscape of threats to cyber physical systems is both diverse and very different to traditional IT ecosystems. I am now investigating how asset owners and supply chain can meet the requirements of the EU Network and Information Systems (NIS) Directive
