THE CHALLENGE : “A smart city is a city where people feel safe”

Today, more than 3 Billions of the world’s population lives in urban areas, a proportion that is expected to double by 2050. According Mc kinsey Global Institute “the top 600 cities will generate nearly 65% of the world economic growth to 2025.”

Public safety and security: Above all, cities need to be safe. Public safety and security has become paramount for city administrations, whether protecting against crime, natural disasters, accidents or terrorism

Data Integrity: People are increasingly using unsecured Wi-Fi hotspots to access personal information (email, social network, Internet banking) and exposing themselves to various types of attacks.

Intelligent transportation: Keeping the city moving is critical. Transportation strategies have an impact on public safety, the environment, the ability to do business, and critical deliveries; not to mention general quality of life.

Connected healthcare: In many cases, telemedicine solutions, connected through broadband, wireless or satellite, can be vital in situations where the infrastructure is not properly secured.

Ensuring continuity of critical services: Like any other ICT system, the smart city technological and communication environment – the network infrastructure and the Internet of Things – will present vulnerabilities to cyber attacks. The higher complexity and heterogeneity of these environments could in fact determine an even higher exposure, and need for more sophisticated protection strategies.

Securing the smart grid and critical infrastructure: It is estimated that cities are responsible for between 60% and 80% of the world’s energy use. Smart grids and related infrastructure need protection from attacks that could cause severe stoppages to cities, public communities, industrial sites and essential services.
