Designed-in Cybersecurity for Smart Cities: A Discussion of Unifying Architectures, Standards, Lessons Learned and R&D Strategies


The Designed-in Cybersecurity for Smart Cities Workshop is being jointly held by NIST and the Cybersecurity Research Alliance (CSRA). This workshop responds to the needs of communities around the world – from small towns to megacities – that are turning to smart city solutions to improve livability, workability, and sustainability. Essential to the success of these efforts are smart city solutions that are secure, reliable, and privacy-enhancing.

This workshop will foster collaborative discussion on how cybersecurity and privacy engineering might be designed into the infrastructure of a new generation of smart cities. To this end, the panel and breakout sessions provide opportunities for discussions about architectures (from the city or enterprise perspective), standards, privacy, and research and development.The goals are to identify short-, mid-, and long-term strategies for research and development (R&D) that enable transformative solutions for secure, privacy-preserving smart cities.


Please see full agenda.
