Presented by

About this talk

This presentation addresses how the international adoption of smart technologies and the increased reliance on networking them in cyberspace has increased cyber attack risks for "Smart Cities." Smart Cities are urban centers designed to integrate cyber technologies and physical infrastructures to create environmental and economic efficiencies while improving the overall quality of life of its citizens. While the benefits of Smart City technologies are well recognized, the risks associated with cyber-physical system integration in urban critical infrastructures is not well understood. Smart City system integration has increased the cyber attack surface immeasurably for malicious actors to exploit ICT vulnerabilities to create cyber attacks which can disrupt essential services, physical damage equipment, or cause loss of life. This presentation focuses on the types cyber attacks that are possible against Smart Cities and the consequences when directed at Transportation Systems, the Electrical Grid, Water Supply, and Wastewater Disposal critical infrastructures.
