IMPAKT programme completed

In 2014, the Directorate General of Public Works and Water Management (Rijkswaterstaat) set up a ‘Secure Working’ programme to reduce the vulnerability of infrastructure-related ICT systems and to increase responsiveness in case of incidents.

Following a preparation phase, structures like tunnels, bridges and locks were inspected on-site by a multidisciplinary team of engineers and specialists from Rijkswaterstaat, VKA, Witteveen+Bos, Royal HaskoningDHV and Pilz. They surveyed the structures, interviewed managers, and performed on-site tests of functional safety, cyber security and access security. Completed in late 2017, the programme helped to improve the safety and security of no less than 460 infrastructure objects. Witteveen+Bos, Royal HaskoningDHV and Pilz established a separate engineering firm under the name IMPAKT to continue their successful collaboration.
