Fortinet Transportation and Logistics Cybersecurity Solution: Safeguarding Air, Rail, and Maritime Control Systems


Published July 2024


The transportation and logistics (T&L) industry is in the midst of business transformation. This change is being driven by the need to improve delivery time, sustainability, and customer experience to avoid unexpected disruption and allow a simple flow to the final destination. To address growing global demands, T&L companies are modernizing their infrastructures and systems by investing in the Internet of Things (IoT), operational technology (OT), big data, 5G, and artificial intelligence (AI).

These digitization efforts are connecting people and onboard systems with the cloud but also increasing cybersecurity risk. With the average cost of a breach being $4.35 million, organizations engaged in transportation must implement strong security controls that protect their systems, data, and all stakeholders.
