Abstract

Using IT applications is essential for the productive, safe and reliable transportation service. However, there are concerns regarding the cybersecurity vulnerability of IT applications. In this study, we investigate the role of IT in the surface transportation security based on responses from mid and high level managers in transportation industries. Our survey results indicate that managers of the transportation industry think IT applications are fundamental components in the surface transportation operation and security. However, they are highly concern about cybersecurity threats on IT applications. Our research findings contribute to provide the understating of the sate of IT application on surface transportation systems and cybersecurity threats. Our research results and analysis are discussed in this paper.
