Back to news

Cyber Security is the final discussion in our Smart Futures series. This workshop explored how we can keep our smart cities safe from cyber threats. The world is changing, and cyber security is not just an IT or security challenge – it’s a business imperative for all organisations, small or large.

Our speakers set the context for the threats and opportunities facing a smart city and how we can keep our future cities safe from cyber threat.

Key issues for discussion included:

  • What are the cyber security threats and developing trends facing transportation? What does this mean?
  • How might this affect your business strategy? How can you adapt in response to dynamically evolving cyber threats?
  • What do organisations have to consider in mounting digital defences?
  • Supply chain conflict: What should you think about when subcontracting with third parties?

A summary of the discussion can be found here: Smart Futures Cyber Security, 6 December 2018
