Speaker: Rob Miller, MWR InfoSecurity

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?
