American Trucking Associations' Technology & Maintenance Council, through a joint effort with Serjon, now is offering commercial vehicle cybersecurity training online for TMC and ATA members at a discounted rate, 10% off an individual lessor or a series bundle.
ATA said there are several reasons to consider this training, including:
- The 2023 Travelers Risk Index reported that 55% of transportation leaders expressed considerable concern about cyber risks.
- According to the 2024 Third-Party Logistics Study, the adoption of emerging technologies is deemed crucial for future supply chain growth by 87% of shippers and 94% of third-party logistics providers.
- Proxima, a consulting firm specializing in supply chain and procurement, noted a significant 700% surge in cyberattacks across the supply chain since their implementation.
- In October, Estes Express Lines, one of the largest for-hire carriers in North America, disclosed a significant ransomware attack.
The trucking industry adds $750 billion to the economy yearly, with over 80% of U.S. communities relying solely on trucks to receive their goods.
What Is It?
Serjon created a practical cybersecurity training program with modules. This program helps those in charge of IT systems and decision-makers protect their businesses from threats. It also teaches how to respond to incidents and make organizations stronger against cyber-attacks.
Why You Need It
The training is not just informative but also practical and affordable, ATA said, making it an ideal online resource for small- and medium-sized businesses.
The course includes eight modules covering cyber threats, cybersecurity basics, firewalls, endpoint protection, equipment setup, and more.
