How To Build a Smart City: Securing and Standardizing IoT
The When: Sept 10th, 11am PST/ 2pm EST
The Why: Smart Cities are no longer just a pipe dream. The moment of a fully connected experience in the place that you live is not only possible now, it is in initial development stages. At this current moment, multiple cities across the globe have started to implement IoT for safety, asset management, logistics, city planning, traffic issues, public transportation, and a myriad of other use cases. However, each city is going about this in their own particular way based off budget, buy in, size, scope, incumbent technology stacks, and most importantly the problems they are trying to solve.
With each city acting as their own Proof of Concept project, standardization will be a key sticking point over the next few years, especially when it comes to IoT Security. Without the proper security in place, setting up thousands of exposed end points will be a major liability for city governments and their residents. Building these new solution with security as a baseline component will be how cities will reach their goals of full connectivity without risk do doing more hard than benefit.
Clovity and Dispersive, two leaders in IoT and Security, will talk best practices and standards for building Smart Cities in this upcoming partner webinar. Chris Medina and Chris Swan will start to lay out a joint vision of the cities of the future where IoT and Security are key components to the daily life of urbanites.
