Cybersecurity awareness is now at an all-time high, as the digital transformation of cities and their infrastructures is accelerating the rate of cyber threats and the development of information and communication technology has spread throughout the world. Communication grows massively in cyberspace and thus poses a security threat to smart city services. In this context, as many cities are integrating more digital services and infrastructure, cybersecurity strategies must be conceived as a priority. This session will take a look into the most critical issues facing security and risk leaders currently, and will debate how can cities adapt to the changing role of cybersecurity, keeping their secure and resilient digital environment, and how governments, urban planners and key actors should approach this challenge.
