Customer Background

During the visit of a significant foreign dignitary to Taiwan in 2020, both Taiwan Railways and 7-11’s electronic advertising billboards, as well as the official website of Taoyuan International Airport, were subjected to consecutive cyberattacks. In fact, the volume of daily cyberattacks increased by 23 times. Information security for public transportation billboards is crucial as they serve as vital channels for conveying important messages. However, they were compromised by ad replacement. Following these incidents, various entities have heightened their cybersecurity awareness and now require the installation of firewalls for screen billboard systems within stations to prevent unauthorized access and potential attacks.

The Challenges
Issue 1 The security of information on public transportation billboards is important. Is the cybersecurity defense adequate? Issue 2 The risk of critical information leakage.
The public sector is enhancing cybersecurity awareness to strengthen the stability and security of public transportation systems.

Public transportation billboards face various security challenges, including external attacks and information leaks. Hackers may attempt unauthorized access or control, leading to the leakage of critical data such as schedules and passenger information. To address these challenges, public transportation authorities need to establish robust information security defenses and emergency response plans.
