Integrating Safety, Security and Human Factors Engineering in Rail
With the new emerging dependency towards the rail industry, there have been growing concerns on how to make this critical infrastructure more adaptable in this technological era of cyber attacks. Currently, the rail infrastructure is built around safety and human factors, but one important factor which has less attention is cyber security. In order to satisfy the security needs of rail stakeholders, there is a need to put together knowledge in the form of design framework by combining safety and human factors, with cyber security. The research problem addresses is how the process-techniques and tools support available in safety, security and human factors engineering can be integrated toprovide design solutions in rail infrastructure.
