Alstom to Invest in Cybersecurity with Focus on Rail
Alstom invested approximately $117,000 in Campus Cyber SAS, a French company supporting the wider Paris “Campus Cyber” initiative. This investment strengthens Alstom’s ambition to lead the way to greener and smarter mobility, worldwide, as outlined in the company’s Alstom in Motion 2025 strategic plan.
As a shareholder, Alstom has now become an associate member of the campus, a center aimed at unifying the cybersecurity community and developing synergies between various industry players. Joining this campus will enhance existing rail systems’ cybersecurity capabilities and help drive the rail industry towards a cyber-safe future.
The “Campus Cyber”, located in La Défense (near Paris), will open in autumn 2021, and bring together industry, governments, academic and associations representatives under a single co-creation environment. Additional regional hubs are scheduled to open in the coming years.
