|Benefits and Cybersecurity and Privacy Risks
|Cities and communities stand to harvest unprecedented benefits from advances in information and communications technologies (ICT), in general, and Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence (AI), in particular. Smart cities inevitably introduce new or heighten existing cyber risks, which demand proper consideration in design to ensure the optimal realization of intended Smart City outcomes.
|Key Smart City Risk Management Considerations
|Operationalizing and standardizing risk management across the organization is critical for minimizing cybersecurity and privacy risks during the development and operation of Smart City capabilities and solutions. It will be up to cities and their partners to determine the appropriate risk management policies and processes to adopt and implement based on their current risk management practices, risk posture, and their risk management strategy. While aspects of risk management may seem daunting and challenging, there are certainly opportunities that cities can leverage to their advantage.
|Trustworthy Smart Cities through Risk Management
|Organizations participating in the Smart City environment – whether as municipalities, critical infrastructure operators, product or service providers, or citizens – already consider at least some aspects of risk (e.g., business risk, reputational risk) in the development and deployment of Smart City capabilities and solutions. And one growing area of risk is cybersecurity and privacy risk.
