2-day workshop targets cybersecurity for Smart Cities: unifying architectures, standards, R&D strategies

May 8, 2015
The Designed-in Cybersecurity for Smart Cities Workshop will be jointly held by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the Cybersecurity Research Alliance (CSRA) on May 27-28.

The "Designed-in Cybersecurity for Smart Cities Workshop" will be jointly held by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), an agency of the U.S. Department of Commerce, and the Cybersecurity Research Alliance (CSRA), on May 27-28 at NIST's headquarters in Gaithersburg, MD.

NIST describes the conference program thusly: "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 [seminar's] panel and breakout sessions [will] 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."
