As you may know, TSA’s primary security focus in surface transportation systems is on oversight, cooperation, and regulation. Of highlight, TSA conducted voluntary security assessments for pipeline, mass transit and over-the-road bus entities and school bus districts to help raise the national security baseline. Chairman Inouye, Vice-Chairman Stevens, and other members of the Committee, I am pleased to be here today to testify, on behalf of the Secretary of Transportation, about the security of our Nation's passenger and freight railroad network and the efforts that the Department of Transportation (DOT) is making to enhance rail safety and security.
TSA faces important challenges in improving the effectiveness of the Transportation Security Inspectors -- Surface. As TSA expands its presence in non-aviation modes, it must look critically at how it is deploying resources. SECURITY ACTIONS TO DATE The Administration has made important progress in advancing surface transportation security for the Nation. Significant Federal efforts and resources augment and continue the improvements to surface transportation security made by private industry and all levels of government.
Transportation Security Administration (TSA) reported allocating most of its surface transportation program account, which was $ million in fiscal year and $ million in fiscal year to three offices (see figure). The surface program account represented about percent of the agency's appropriation in both fiscal years Format: Kindle.

Improving Surface Transportation Security: A Research and Development Strategy [National Research Council, Division on Engineering and Physical Sciences, Transportation Research Board, Computer Science and Improving Surface Transportation Security book Board, National Materials Advisory Board, Commission on Physical Sciences, Mathematics, and Applications, Commission on Engineering and Technical Systems, Committee on R&D Strategies to Improve Surface Transportation Security.
The surface transportation system relies on a variety of other infrastructure sectors. The power grid, for example, is needed to run subway trains, traffic management systems, the cranes that load cargo vessels, the pumps that supply vehicles with gasoline and other fuels, and.
The surface transportation system is vital to our nation's economy, defense, and quality of life. Because threats against the system have hitherto been perceived as minor, little attention has been paid to its security.

Committee on R & D Strategies to Improve Surface Transportation Security,]. In an effort to improve the support and services we provide, over the last several months TSA has elevated the Surface Operations leadership position, realigned resources to focus on surface inspections, established the Surface Transportation Security Advisory Committee, and distributed a survey to more than 3, surface transportation.
We testified about the Transportation Security Administration’s efforts to improve aviation and surface transportation security under the TSA Modernization found TSA:Reviews its directives to address threats to airlines and vulnerabilities at foreign airports but could better coordinate with airlinesCould do a better job measuring the effectiveness of rules it uses to identify.
TSA is most visible at the airport, but it also has a role in protecting mass transit, rail, and other surface transportation. TSA received about $ million a year in for surface transportation activities, including training and exercises for system operators and government security ’s Policy, Plans, and Engagement office runs the training program, but other offices.

Designate a lead agency to coordinate periodic modal and cross-modal security risk analyses. Implement an integrated federal approach that consolidates capabilities in a unified effort for security.
Aviation and Transportation Security Act gave the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) the responsibility to secure all modes of transportation in the United States. TSA created the Surface Transportation Security Inspection Program in to provide oversight and assistance to surface transportation modes.
In the surface environment, TSA has built upon those standards to improve the security posture with minimal regulations.

Consistent with this strategy, the purpose of this rule is to solidify the baseline of security for higher-risk surface transportation operations by improving and sustaining the preparedness of surface transportation employees in higher-risk operations, including their critical capability to observe, assess, and respond to security risks and.
The Surface Transportation Cybersecurity Resource toolkit is a collection of documents designed to provide cyber risk management information to surface transportation operators who have fewer than 1, employees.
The materials are drawn from three primary sources: Cybersecurity threats are real. The committee's purpose was to examine the vulnerabilities of the surface transportation system, identify ways to improve the system's security, and recommend a strategy for research and development (R&D).
The committee consisted of 14 members with diverse expertise in science, technology, and policy. H.R. improves the effectiveness of federal efforts to identify and address homeland security risks to surface transportation, secure against vehicle-based attacks, and conduct a feasibility assessment of introducing new security technologies and measures.
Specifically, the bill requires a Government Accountability Office (GAO). Devolving power back to state and local governments would improve the speed and value of surface transportation spending, enhance policy flexibility, and improve. improving surface transportation security through research and development In some countries, bombings of highways, bridges, pipelines, buses, and railway stations are daily news.
Worldwide, hundreds of surface transportation targets are attacked each by: 7. The purpose of this proposed rule is to solidify the enhanced baseline of security for higher-risk surface transportation operations by improving and sustaining the capability of employees to observe, assess, and respond to security risks and potential security breaches.

The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) is working on multiple fronts to improve the cyber security resilience of surface transportation infrastructures.realistic security option for surface transportation.
• Screening some passengers by conducting selective searches, is a viable security option. • Terrorist alerts, specific threat information, or attacks on transportation targets elsewhere may dictate that security measures be rapidly increased to discourage copycats and reassure ridersFile Size: 98KB.
