Smart Cities & Infrastructure Working Group

Our mission is to improve cybersecurity in smart infrastructure industries: smart building, digital grid, public transportation, etc.

Our vision is to accelerate the smart infrastructure’s transition towards a more secure future

Smart Infrastructures escalates the physical world with digital insights, as it is largely driven by data. It comprises a number of sectors, including the smart building industry, digital grid, and public transport, making the world a more interconnected place. Smart Infrastructures with internet-connected systems play a critical role in establishing socially and economically sustainable Smart Cities.

Should the integrity of any one of these sectors be compromised by a malicious attack, the consequences could be catastrophic. A malicious actor could target specific facilities—such as hospitals, airports, schools, or banks—to shut down vital services and limit the ability of emergency personnel to respond. This working group unites leading experts with a goal to improve the cybersecurity of smart infrastructure industries
