Smart Cities Are The Future – But How Secure Will They Be?
Although smart devices have become more common, the idea of a smart city still feels theoretical and futuristic. With the billions in investments going into smart cities, smart cities are our not-so-far future. That being said, we also need to consider the ever-increasing cyber-risks that can target the city’s vulnerabilities and take advantage of it.
Cybersecurity experts will certainly have their work cut out to devise software solutions that protect potentially millions of people at once, as well as countless networks all connected to one another.
Currently, many devices work together in offices, homes, other places, but despite this, there is no cybersecurity standard that needs to be followed. Due to this digital security becomes an add-on instead of part of the design.
The Securing Smart Cities program and others can help identify possible issues with cybersecurity so that relevant solutions can be adopted. Governments across the globe must create and set standard cybersecurity regulations and ensure it is followed. Besides this, more training and awareness campaigns will need to be rolled out, especially since phishing attacks is considered to be one of the most successful attacks for cybercriminals. Quality control standards need to be set as well so that all the updates and patches are automatically applied for improved security.
