Smart-cities under attack? Which way for cybersecurity in digital societies?

Is the digital transition beyond smart-cities opening the gate to a new level of cyber-attacks? Safety, security and privacy represent some of key challenges and vulnerabilities for cybersecurity. This is especially relevant when smart-cities deal with big data, 5G and IoT. Are logistics, public transport, energy and water supplies and health-related services at risk? Which solutions and knowledge are required by administrators, businesses and communities? Can Smart-cities prevent cyber-attacks, while protecting and respecting citizens rights? Which partnerships and cooperation models are needed?

ROUND TABLE & CASE STUDIES

Daring to innovate: Start-ups and SMEs advancing Cyber-security and Industry 4.0

Cyber-security technology is evolving so rapidly that often large organisations are not able to move swiftly enough to adapt and follow the changes brought by disruptive innovation.
