How transit security is evolving

Rapid technological advancement, increasing urbanization, and the growing expectations of commuters and governments are pressuring transit industry players to modernize their security systems. But how do you modernize while protecting yourself from the pitfalls of proprietary and distinct systems that restrain your growth?

How transit security is evolving

Increasing need for collaboration

Increasing need for collaboration

Security and operations teams need closer collaboration to address today's realities. Commuters expect more convenience and on-demand information from their transit services, but transit agencies are traditionally very siloed. Even with the latest technological tools, these silos impede internal collaboration. How can you break down these silos, and is your technology enabling your efforts or impeding them?

Growing interest in shared data

Growing interest in shared data

Transit agencies collect large amounts of valuable data about their environment and operations. Commuters, urban planners, first responders, and other stakeholders want to use transit data to support their decision making. Collecting, analyzing, and sharing data easily and securely requires a modern and open platform. How are you deriving value from your data to gain insights for yourself, and how are you sharing it with others?

Rising trust and cybersecurity concerns

Rising trust and cybersecurity concerns

Transit agencies select, purchase, install, and manage a growing number of devices. This increased interconnectivity exposes agencies to higher risk as there are more network access points to manage. Mitigating these risks becomes a critical undertaking to maintain public trust. Do you have the controls in place to ensure a trustworthy supply chain, a secure physical infrastructure, and effective cybersecurity policies?

What value does your security system bring?

intelligence

Intelligence

Your security system already monitors your facilities. Leverage this data to get real-time notifications of security, operational, or maintenance events. As your daily operations proceed and activities occur on your premises, collecting and making sense of data gives you an edge for incident response.

Operations

Operations

Whether it is confirming the need for maintenance calls through video, or keeping track of your vehicle fleet in real-time to give estimated arrival times to commuters, your security system should go beyond security to bring value to your operational teams.

Safety

Safety

Providing safety in public transit for commuters and staff is achieved through the use of a dynamic system that adapts to security challenges with you. As security challenges change through the day, your security system should provide you with the information you need to make decisions.
