New guidance on cyber security best practices for smart cities

Cybersecurity agencies of the US, UK, Canada, Australia and New Zealand have joined forces and published their Cybersecurity Best Practices for Smart Cities guide. It provides recommendations to balance efficiency and innovation with cybersecurity, privacy protections, and national security.

Smart cities have the potential to offer communities cost savings and the potential to make everyday life safer and more resilient for citizens, but these benefits must be balanced with the risks.

These risks include an expanded and interconnected attack surface, risks from the supply chain, and vulnerabilities that can be introduced by automating infrastructure operations.
