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. 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.
