Cybersecurity and Privacy: The Two Main Tenets in the Smart City Project

Posted on in Presentations

The panel will discuss lessons learned from each panelist’s implementation of a smart city project and how cybersecurity and privacy considerations are given from the outset in their plans. Security by design is fundamental to a successful IoT-enabled smart city project.

Learning Objectives:
1: Learn why public-private partnerships and a community-centric approach are needed to ensure success.
2: Understand why in a smart city implementation, cybersecurity is an operational, not technical, problem.
3: Learn why manufacturers must be incentivized to build security from the outset in their solution.

The session benefits individuals that are involved in an IoT-enabled smart city ecosystem.
