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?




Industry 4.0.: Managing the risks, leading the transition

Industries are at the forefront of digital transformation with huge capital and technological investments. However, relying more and more on digital processes and automation makes industries vulnerable to cyber attacks on a scale unseen before. Industry 4.0. will also change the cybersecurity landscapes, but how? What are the main risks industries face today and how do they address future threats in terms of products, processes and people?


AI reshaping our societies: Are new professions needed for cybersecurity?

New services and digital solutions promise to help societies to boost their economy, make life easier and safer to citizens and offer a more effective and responding public administration. AI is a primary force in these processes, cybersecurity too but they both carry also higher complexities including the need for new knowledge and skilled professional. What are the new professions on the horizon? Will we need them to manage business, education, health, justice and participative processes?
