Webinar Cybersecurity: Building Secure Technologies from IoT to Smart-Cities
Cyber and National Security Programs Webinar Series 2020-2021
Cities are becoming “smart” through digital transformation efforts in order to increase economic growth, enhance citizen and government engagement, improve the quality of life for citizens (e.g., transportation, public utilities, safety, equality, employment), and reduce negative environmental impact, among many other benefits.
According to varying reports, over the next 20 years, the smart-city market is expected to exceed $1.7 trillion. All great news. However, with this new expansion and development of increased interconnectivity via smart-cities, we need to also focus on the many cybersecurity risks that could detrimentally impact not only the communities we live in but also the public and private critical infrastructure.
What to do? In our webinar, we will discuss how cities and communities can, by using IoT-enabled frameworks and other best practices, develop programs to effectively address the cybersecurity issues faced by cities and communities looking to become “smart.”
