We are here to help the world build smart cities with cybersecurity in mind.Securing Smart Cities is an initiative to identify the cyber-security challenges facing smart cities and to propose workable solutions to address them. We aim to promote cyber-security best practices and cyber-solutions for all the technologies used by smart cities – with the goal of creating safer and better places for everyone.

The concept of a smart city is very topical, and many organizations around the world are working on intelligent solutions to make urban areas energy efficient, comfortable, environmentally-friendly and safe. Far fewer are thinking of the cyber-security of these smart cities.

The more IT is involved in the creation and operation of a smart city, the greater the potential risk. If not addressed early on, the cost and complexity of creating a smart city could make it far more difficult to address security problems further down the line. Securing Smart Cities aims to solve cyber-problems at every stage of a smart city’s development: from planning through to the actual implementation of smart technologies.
