Smart cities present a tremendous opportunity for growth, sustainability,
and social improvement.
Many organisations are working on intelligent solutions to make urban areas energy efficient, comfortable, environmentally friendly, and physically safe. However, the projects can’t just be smart, they also need to be safe and secure.
Enabling embedded technologies and leveraging the Internet of Things in city infrastructure brings forth risk that must be considered and monitored to maintain safety for citizens. The more IT organisations involved in creating a smart city, the greater the potential risk. If security is not addressed early on, the cost and complexity of a smart city could make it difficult to address problems. In the end, the city would be left vulnerable.
