The following key points are covered in this course:

Vulnerable Assets and Security Priorities in Commercial Vehicle Operations

Addressing Vulnerabilities

Planning for Deployment

Next Steps/Applying Steps to Implement ITS/CVO Security Initiatives

The purpose of this course is not to make participants experts, but to provide them with the basic tools and resources needed for ITS/CVO Security Awareness, and direction on where to go for more information.


Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Name vulnerabilities and security priorities in commercial vehicle operations
  • State procedural and technology countermeasures available to address vulnerabilities
  • List the key phases in deploying ITS/CVO security solutions.
  • Formulate next steps and potential opportunities to coordinate efforts in the deployment of potential ITS/CVO security initiatives
