To solve cyber-problems at every stage of a smart city’s development

BANGALORE, INDIA: Securing Smart Cities, a new not-for-profit global initiative, is being launched today.

The Securing Smart Cities initiative aims to solve the cybersecurity challenges smart cities face through collaboration and information sharing.

Participants in Securing Smart Cities believe that the initiative will help efficiently and responsibly share knowledge about the cybersecurity of modern cities. It will connect vendors of infrastructure automation equipment with security researchers ready to validate the secure functioning of these products. It will also bring city authorities together with the security community to collaboratively solve new cybersecurity problems.

“Securing Smart Cities aims to solve cyber-problems at every stage of a smart city’s development: from planning through to the actual implementation of smart technologies. We encourage city authorities, equipment and software vendors, as well as security researchers to join the discussion,” said Patrick Nielsen, principal security researcher at Kaspersky Lab and Board Member of the Securing Smart Cities initiative.
