Calendar

In this Cyber-Hostile world, renowned experts will join forces to inspire other in becoming more security serious. This event is all about the IT security industry, and the professionals that work within it, getting together to take Security Seriously.

MWR is a supporter of the Security Serious campaign and will be hosting a webinar on Smart City Security.

Talks hosted by MWR

Topic: Securing the Smart City: Key issues in being part of an interconnected infrastructure
Speaker: Rob Miller, MWR InfoSecurity
Time & Date: 12.00pm, Friday, 30th October

Smart City technology is an attractive prospect to councils and utilities for reducing waste and improving profits. The global smart city market is projected to be worth $400 billion per annum by 2020 but what exactly makes up a smart city?

The concept behind all smart cities is an attractively simple one: with more information about problems we can deal with them more effectively. For instance if we can track the traffic on our roads, not only can we update the timings of our traffic lights to manage it, we can respond intelligently to traffic incidents by giving directions to the drivers affected. Smart cities involve large distributed networks with unique technologies and processes. So how do we apply lessons from IT security in this new world?
