Back to all news

Experts from Frazer-Nash’s rail team will be taking part in the 14th International Exhibition of Railway Equipment, Systems and Services (Railtex) at Birmingham’s National Exhibition Centre (NEC) from 14-16 May 2019.

The team will be at Stand S61 showcasing how Frazer-Nash delivers solutions that drive its clients’ rail programmes’ success across both the infrastructure and rolling stock sectors.

Head of Frazer-Nash's transport business, Phil Harris, said:

“We’re looking forward to meeting attendees at Railtex 2019, and hearing about the issues they are facing – whether these centre on implementing modern digital command, control and signalling systems, ensuring safety, delivering reliable stock and services, or understanding their infrastructure needs. Our team has extensive experience in helping our rail sector clients overcome their challenges, and supporting them to deliver complex programmes successfully.

“With ‘Digital Rail’ and the adoption of new technologies and disruptive techniques under the microscope at Railtex, we’ll be happy to discuss how our experts are helping clients to innovate and capitalise on the opportunities – and protecting them from the threats – that the ever-accelerating digital revolution offers. Our unique depot modelling tool is allowing clients to deliver more reliable train services; while our cyber and information systems expertise is supporting them in remaining resilient against cyber threats.

Frazer-Nash’s Cyber Lead, Steve Little, will be talking about the threat posed from cyber space to the rail sector on 14 May. Steve’s presentation: ‘Trust - How Cyber Are You?’ will consider how a whole system approach can help organisations to identify, protect, detect, respond or recover from a cyber-attack.

Steve said: “Typically, cyber threats have been considered solely a technology problem, but complex enterprises such as the rail sector are an amalgam of people, processes, information, technology and facilities (PPITF). Countering these cyber threats and the risks they pose requires a whole system approach, and an understanding of PPITF and the interdependencies between them.
