Smart Cities under Attack: Cybercrime and Technology Response

Smart cities face the problem of an ever growing world population living in cities. This creates huge challenges mostly related to public transport, public safety, waste management, and the supply of energy and water. Governments and municipalities must sustain city infrastructure and provide public services.

Smart cities are highly vulnerable and prone to attacks which are very hard to address or even detect in first place. These attacks may target the correct delivery or designated function of city services. It can also aim towards the theft of collected information of governments and citizens, or aim individual targets part of that infrastructure.

In this talk, we look into the threat landscape by defining the security requirements and the known threats of smart city infrastructures. Then, we investigate cybercrimes in smart cities by covering a selection of use-cases, known vulnerabilities, attack scenarios, and real-world cyberattacks already experienced. Finally, I provide security and privacy recommendations for the IoT-based smart city infrastructure.
