Public Transportation Security Vertical Insights Symposium
In 2019, Americans rode public transit 34 million times every weekday. Providing security for all of these passengers – plus nearly a half million employees – is a daunting challenge for the nearly 7,000 organizations that run these systems. SIA’s Public Transportation Vertical Insights Symposium will examine several of the key security issues in the sector, including:

• Personal safety of passengers and staff
• Cybersecurity
• Impact of the federal infrastructure bill
• “Good-Better-Best” guidelines for transit security
• And more

With speakers from the transit community, the security industry and the federal government, this event will provide invaluable insights into how security technology helps to keep America moving.


  • Sean Ahrens, Project Manager, Affiliated Engineers

  • Polly Hanson, Senior Director of Security, Risk & Emergency Management, American Public Transportation Association
  • David Mayhew, Principal Engineer, Intelligent Automation
