He'll be joined by J. Alex Lang, CIO of Carload Express Inc.; Biff Myre, director of solutions at OnX Managed Services Inc.; and Ron Schlecht, managing partner at BTB Security.

The speakers will discuss how railroads and vendors are managing and decreasing risk related to the rise of the Internet of Things and positive train control.
