Cyber-security for Critical Infrastructure

City managers around the world are launching smart city initiatives to improve the efficiency, effectiveness and attractiveness of their infrastructure and services.  Exploiting new technology developments is central to all of those efforts.  Having a proper cybersecurity strategy in place before major programs are launched is essential to avoid compromises that could jeopardize community safety and prosperity.

Cybersecurity challenges vary significantly across the many different infrastructure investments that underlie smart city initiatives.  Design information, for critical services like water, power, and transportation must be protected throughout the asset lifecycle.  Installed systems need to be protected against cyber-attacks by terrorists and unfriendly nations that might want to compromise their operation.  Citizens need to be assured that their information is protected whenever they use broad-based, city-wide connectivity.

This panel discussion will bring together people with experience in each of these arenas.  The resulting discussion will educate attendees on the challenges that must be addressed and offer suggestions as to what is needed for an effective cyber-security strategy.
