Security has long been regarded as an integral part of smart city discussions. Yet, in the face of unprecedented levels of emerging risk and deep uncertainty, more needs to be done to ensure that concepts like ‘zero-trust’, ‘secure-by-design’, and ‘connected identity’ are baked-in by default and leveraged effectively across the lifecycle of urban systems that we depend on to thrive. In this webinar, techUK will convene leading industry experts to explore how security can enable smart technology adoption and point towards use cases and practical advice that can be deployed in the real-world. This webinar will also touch on the significance of emerging guidelines and regulations in the sphere, and feed into research being conducted by techUK’s interdisciplinary Smart Cities Working Group.
