Tomorrow is the deadline for people interested in presenting at Progressive Railroading's 2017 Secure Rail conference to submit an abstract outlining their proposed speaking topics.

Secure Rail is seeking speakers with expertise in the latest risks and threats to physical and cybersecurity; anticipating future threats; and safeguarding rail organizations from such threats.

The abstract should be limited to 50 words. All conference sessions will be 50 minutes in length. Accepted presenters must submit their presentation materials by March 1, 2017.

The conference will be held April 5-6, 2017, in Orlando, Fla. Secure Rail is the first conference that addresses North American rail security from an organizational perspective.
