Modern cities are becoming more connected, making use of new technologies for traffic control, public transport, street lighting, security, and city resource management. This digital transformation to smart systems has a profound impact on cities, helping them operate more efficiently to improve services to residents and businesses, while enhancing citizen well-being, sustainability, and economic development.
This presentation shows you the ever-growing risks of using the technology that enables smart cities. With the advancement of information, communication, and IoT technologies, comes new vulnerabilities, and opportunities for cyber attacks, resulting in disruption and denial of services. Cesar Cerrudo, CTO for IOActive Labs, will explore how Smart City technologies are hackable - providing insights to current threat and potential attack scenarios, examples of real-world incidents, and offer recommendations and steps to take to improve a smart city’s security posture.
