Lesson Background HTML
A Transportation Management Center (TMC) is the heart of many critical transportation systems; therefore, it is important for a TMC to become resilient to cyber-attack incidents by becoming aware of threats, determining vulnerabilities, assessing risk, and developing and following an Information Technology (IT) incident response plan, in close coordination with IT support resources.

In response to Executive Order 13636, Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity, the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) developed a Cyber Security Action Team to implement the Department’s Incident Response Capability Program. The team leveraged U.S. transportation system security threat and vulnerability assessments and research conducted by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) staff and offered insights in a series of articles on transportation security that began in the July 2013 ITE Journal and includes this article.
