A recent IoT security survey found 90% of the consumers lack confidence in the security of IoT devices. There are various vulnerabilities like Hijacked Devices Sending Spam Emails, Hijacked Devices Conscripted into Botnets, Home Intrusions, Remote Vehicle Hijacking.
But more recently cities across the world are one after another trying to become so-called Smart Cities. A smart city should be seen as a software ecosystem eg., Internet of Things, defined as a dynamic evolution of software systems on top of a common technological platform offering a set of software solutions and services. Software ecosystems are gradually being used to support critical tasks and operations.
Smart cities include concepts such as smart transportation, the use of autonomous transportation systems like autonomous cars, subways, shipping, drones, and improved management of infrastructures like power and water supply. This requires safe and resilient infrastructure and closer collaboration between governments.
In this talk, I will cover the review of the safety, security, and resilience of smart cities.
– Framing safety, security, and risks in smart cities
– Risk Governance of smart cities for software ecosystems
– Key issues in Governance of the ecosystems
Only a city aiming at the security and public safety of the citizens can have the tag of being a smart city. Every initiative carried out by a smart city needs to start with making a boundary of safety, which is a stepping stone which can be drawn by the artificial intelligence today.
