Collaboration Opportunities in Responding to the COVID-19 pandemic.jpg Responding to the COVID-19 pandemic - A collaboration framework for cities and solutions providers
The coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted cities and communities worldwide. Although cities have emergency and disaster response plans, the scale of the outbreak has strained their resources and capabilities. “Smart City” technologies, with their innovative digital approaches and capabilities, offer the potential to facilitate city responses to COVID-19. As a result, municipalities have turned to technology companies for help.

ROIConsiderations.jpg Benefit, Value and Return on Investment (ROI) Considerations
Smart buildings are one “bottom up” component of a smart city. They incorporate advanced and integrated digital technologies, algorithms and analytics, to bring new and significant value to tenants, building owners and operators. These benefits range from increased tenant productivity, comfort, a safe and healthy environment, lower operating costs, and higher satisfaction. While the benefits and Return on Investment (ROI) of smart buildings are well documented for tenants, occupants, and building owners and operators, similar information for cities is limited at best.
PrivacyChapter.jpg 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.

The scope of this Blueprint will be on the IoT networks themselves – the physical and logical layers, not necessarily the software applications and data generated therefrom.

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.

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.
