Smart City network infrastructure demands a proactive approach to find vulnerabilities before hackers find them
Smart technology continues to change how people live and interact with the cities around them. While the full value of a connected city evolves – one that leverages innovations powered by artificial intelligence and machine learning – cybersecurity stands as one of its greatest challenges.
The Smart City Conundrum
While the promise of Smart Cities provides municipalities and inhabitants with the efficiency and value of “smart” services, it also creates a cybersecurity challenge. Each connected component – from devices to the network infrastructure – offers a potential entry point for hackers to steal data, damage systems, and gain access to information they shouldn’t have.
