Security Considerations Will Need To Be Addressed Before Building The Smart Cities Of Our Future
How do we maintain a balance between the hyperconnected part of the city and the developmentally declining one? Decreasing resources and the increase in the population are forcing the masses to the cities where the existing infrastructure is not enough to accommodate them.
One of the smart cities’ most compelling promises is the capacity to address traditional problems with data-driven incision, mining insights from countless sensors, interactions, and behaviors.
By late 2019, there will be over 300 smart cities, according to the Smart Cities and Communities European Innovation Partnership.
However, we need to acknowledge that there are cybersecurity risks attached to this scenario. The reason being that many technologies and devices built for this is manufactured without proper security or threat mitigation options. This could give way to a range of vulnerabilities. In the recent Black Hat conference, X-Force Red Team from IBM inspected the existing municipality technologies to understand the possibilities of attacks.
According to a prediction by the UN, two-thirds of the population across the globe will be living in megacities by the year 2030. We require governments, tech leaders, and city planners to heed to security measures to make sure the new smart cities are going to be safe.
