Smart Cities Cyber Security

“How many IoT devices exist, with how many computing devices do they share data? How many others have access to that data and what decisions are being made with this data? No one really knows. We just don’t know.”  — Rebecca Herold, The Privacy Professor, at SecureWorld Atlanta

Cyber Security for Smart Cities offers real-life and practical solutions lectured and trained by top-level Cyber Security International Professionals to facilitate and advance robust Security levels in Smart Cities.

“The good we secure for ourselves is precarious and uncertain until it is secured for all of us and incorporated into our common life.” ― Jane Addams

Students will have the opportunity to acquire first-hand knowledge that will bring them to expertise to create, from their own worldview, innovative and sustainable ideas, guaranteeing a better quality of life in the smart cities of today and tomorrow.

Cyber Security In Smart Cities

Every day, the world seems to be edging closer to the total actualization of the smart city systems. As advantageous as this is, there is a need to consider the corresponding need for a heightened cybersecurity framework. This is important considering the fact that every crucial information pertaining to a city and its overall everyday function has been actively linked to connecting networks online, and any security bridge could prove rather disastrous.

There are a number of valid solutions that have been brought to the table, such as a detailed cyber-attack recovery plan or some other form of safeguarded backup, as well as threat override modules. But these solutions must be holistic, because with the increased adoption of smart city methods, one of the things that people and government must be ready to deal with, are the increased chances for hacker activities.

IOT And Cloud Communication in Cyber Smart Cities

Of particular interest, is the use of IoT devices and cloud communication routes for product functioning and service deliveries. If the ease of use and inestimable convenience that comes with all the newly developed IoT devices are pleasant enough, then there must be proactive measures that ensure the continued safety and functionality of these little miracles.

Provision and dissemination of Robust Solution for Cyber Smart Cities

Also of very utmost importance is the enforcement of privacy in smart cities. There are concerns about the safety of personal data flying about the clouds, via data transmission protocols and storage. If the validity of smart cities must be maintained, it would be germane to fix in cybersecurity methods that would ensure non-disclosure of personal and secret stored information.

The use case for smart cities is an accompanying fail proof cyber-security framework. In all essence, smart cities must not be initiated in any way, if there’s no real cyber-security back up model. Hence, it’s not about designing impressive smart city features alone, but also about the sustainability of such online structural edifices.
