Hong Kong: TÜV Rheinland participated in Asia Pacific Rail 2016 at Hong Kong Exhibition Center, the most influential and professional conference and exhibition in the region for the railway industry.
The theme of TÜV Rheinland‘s exhibition booth this year was cybersecurity. With the current fast growth of high technology, system operation and information transfer across areas or even across countries rely heavily on the Internet. Cybersecurity, therefore, becomes very important in people’s daily life. It is also a challenge that requires significant attention from railway and metro operators while hacking and signaling interference are everywhere.
To pinpoint this, TÜV Rheinland’s expert delivered a speech during the conference and emphasized the importance of cybersecurity to the transportation industry, especially the railway sector. He shared with audiences the best practices in various countries, provided a glimpse of future trends and also demonstrated vividly how TÜV Rheinland solutions can support clients in achieving their goals. These topics drew attention from the audience and created discussions among them.
In addition, TÜV Rheinland specially launched five railway safety expert posters and videos at booth E08 to allow visitors to better understand safety solutions. These posters and videos provided a new angle from which viewers can understand engineers‘ professionalism and how we make clients more successful. Many visitors stayed to watch the examples which highlight one of TÜV Rheinland’s core beliefs that ‘What is invisible still matters’.
