Managing the risks of Smart Cities’ connected ecosystems is about quality of life and continued human progress. With the global urban population expected to double by 2050, cities are embracing edge and modern technologies to develop sustainable urban centers. But data privacy is the city’s soft underbelly and protecting it is critical.
More governance isn’t necessarily the answer as complex digital regulations complicate matters with governments looking for ways to transfer risk across their ecosystem. In this session, you will find out why neither governance or traditional cybersecurity solutions, are the sole answer to protecting the Smart City and its citizens. The speaker will share his contrarian view that accountability is the most important element in keeping data, applications and networks safe. Explore how public and private companies can work together to set meaningful and achievable compliance levels – equal to cybersecurity levels. Learn how stakeholders can instill accountability and consequence into the process of privacy protection.
