Identification, recording and investigation of digital anomalies such that those that occur on rolling stock and infrastructure systems can be challenging. Recent examples, such as the investigation by the Rail Accident Investigation Branch (RAIB) of the Cambrian ERTMS signalling incident have highlighted the importance of understanding how complex software-based systems are integrated within the railway network.

To achieve effective risk management, suitable management and technical systems need to be in place, complemented by industry skills and understanding. The requirement for in-depth understanding of potential hazards is increasing as the railway becomes more digital. The overlap between complex software-based system and cybersecurity, particularly maintenance of integrity and availability of digital systems, further adds challenges and complexity.

This webinar will highlight the challenges involved in digital incident investigation, give an overview of current capabilities for asset monitoring and incident identification in use, and outline progress to date on an industry-wide programme to respond to the recommendations of the Cambrian ERTMS report, including increasing digital competency across the UK railway and client-led procurement of complex software-based systems.
