feeling prepared for a cybersecurity threat,
but only 60 percent have a cybersecurity
program in place. Additionally, the study
found 73 percent of respondents feel
they have access to information to help
implement a cybersecurity preparedness
program, but only 60 percent have a cybersecurity response plan in place and 43
percent do not find their plan sufficient.
Other key findings include:
*	47 percent of agencies reported auditing their cybersecurity program at least
once a year;
*	More than 50 percent of agencies do not
keep a log for longer than a year- one of
the most basic cybersecurity preparedness requirements;
*	36 percent do not have a cyber disaster
recovery plan; and 67 percent do not have
a cyber crisis communications plan.
The report's Principal Investigator Scott
Belcher recommended agencies tap into
the " abundance of information and tools,
such as the Transportation Systems Sector
Cybersecurity Framework Implementation
Guidance and accompanying workbook "
to support a cybersecurity program.
Another trending area for transit security is how riders interact with more
traditional safety and security representatives. Community outreach programs
and efforts have been increasing this year.
At New Jersey Transit, the NJ Transit
Police Department expanded its Community Outreach Unit in October to provide help to those in need and maintain
a safe and healthy environment for all.
The five-member team will work across
the various transit districts to provide
aide and connect people to services. The
transit agency says the program concept
helps bridge the gap between law enforcement and social services.
Bay Area Rapid Transit has found success with its Police Ambassador Program,
which was formalized in October. The program began as a pilot earlier this year and
deployed unarmed uniformed personnel
to provide a visible presence to riders and
increase overall safety and security.
Not only can boosting the visibility of
community safety officers help, but increasing the " felt presence " can also deliver benefits. Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority reported at
