Highlighting the critical importance of transportation to a country’s infrastructure and survival, Transportation Systems Security presents the strategic and practical considerations involved in the implementation of physical, procedural, and managerial safeguards required to keep all modes of transportation up and running during a crisis.

Structured in an easy cognitive fashion, this book:

Begins with a basic introduction providing terms and definitions Describes both physical and information system layouts Discusses the need for a “domain-based” approach to threats, assets, vulnerabilities, and safeguards Introduces the concepts of criticality, impact, and consequences as they relate to the assignation of value for personnel, assets, facilities, and information Presents security measures as a value-added benefit rather than a hindrance to business Demonstrates safeguards that layer outward from the entity and across the system with the ability to prevent, detect, and notify, as well as respond to and recover from a crisis Includes a 20-page questionnaire to help managers determine their company’s fragility in terms of transportation securityTaking a holistic approach to the transportation infrastructure, Transportation Systems Security encourages security to become an integrated component within a transportation system.
