Secure Rail coming on Tuesday

Progressive Railroading magazine's new Secure Rail conference begins on Tuesday. To be held Feb. 3-4 at the Sheraton Lake Buena Vista in Orlando, Fla., the conference is dedicated to reviewing security issues and discussing how the rail industry is protecting passengers, technologies and assets from man-made and natural threats.

Secure Rail is the first conference to address North American rail security from an organizational perspective, according to Progressive Railroading.

Nearly 20 sessions will be held, running the gamut from "TSA's Vision for Rail Security" to "PTC Cyber Security" to "Tank Car of the Future" to "Using Drones to Beef Up Network Surveillance." Titled, "Public-Private Partnership for Rail Security," one presentation will address the National Infrastructure Protection Plan, which calls for a public-private partnership in critical infrastructure security. The session will focus on the plan's implementation through joint priorities and coordinated efforts between government and the rail industry, with particular attention paid to preparedness measures and intelligence analysis and security information sharing.

Secure Rail also will enable attendees to share personal perspectives, forge relationships and discuss strategy. The conference includes numerous networking opportunities, lunch functions, an opening night reception and a product showcase with leading industry suppliers.

The price to attend Secure Rail is $899. For more information about the conference, log onto the official website at
