Securing the Smart City Olympics

The modern Olympic Games started in 1896, they are a global stage that brings thousands of athletes from across the world every four years, with the Summer and Winter events taking place interchangeably every four years but two years separately.

The Olympics games, have almost always been used to introduce radically innovative and game-changing technologies intended to make the sporting events more efficient, entertaining and spectacular, while also influencing global changes and technology standardization.

Olympics have always necessitated the introduction of improved technologies, few examples include Stopwatches (Athens 1896), photography (Paris 1900), TV Telecast (Berlin), Shinkansen bullet trains (Tokyo 1964), Quantum timers (London 2012), Virtual reality events monitoring breakthroughs (Rio-2016 and Pyeongchang-2018). New technology has been instrumental in shaping the growth of the Games.

From host countries rushing to improve their infrastructure to networks inventing more mesmerizing viewing experience, the Olympic Games is key to spurring growth in technology; it is a high-profile occasion where each operational blunder can sprout away into a global crisis, leading to dire consequences. Because of the importance of information technology to the success of the event, one area of pivotal concern is cyber security.

Moscow urban forum 2017/July

Round table discussion between #IBM,#Kaspersky, #RAII and the city of #Moscow – how to keep Smart Cities sane when dealing with cyber security threats. The venue was #moscowurbanforum 2017.

“Cities all over the world are facing growing societal challenges and thus creating a pressure both from a political and citizen to be more efficient with resources, legislative procedures and in its capability to deliver public service thus ensuring a high standard of quality of life(Livability). How can cities Invest time and resources in a Cyber Security approach that assures an acceptable  degree of public service and  safety if the city is “offline” that functionally works – when in most Smart City/urban planning projects up till now been a checkbox exercise.”

Establishing a Safe and Secure Municipal Drone Program

Establishing a Safe and Secure Municipal Drone Program

Establishing a Safe and Secure Municipal Drone Program

According to a report from Tractica in 2015, the interest in utilizing drones for commercial applications will drive commercial-grade UAV shipments from 80,000 units in 2015 to more than 2.6 million annually by 2025. The market intelligence firm forecasts that annual revenue from commercial drone hardware sales will reach nearly $4 billion within the same timeframe. However, the more significant revenue opportunity will be in commercial drone-enabled services, which Tractica forecasts will grow to $8.7 billion annually by 2025.
Drones are expected to play a key role in the smart city environment, providing support for a range of use cases: medical, transport and agriculture. These civil implementations can also be used for emergency management use cases such as critical infrastructure protection and inspection, forest fire fighting, police augmentation, coastal monitoring, and identifying changes in urban vegetation. Drones will also be used to support telecommunication services in the handling of capacity surges and the restoration of services following a disaster.
The implementation of drones in the smart city will involve multiple drone platforms that operate simultaneously to run missions. These drone systems must be safely deployed and operated, and protected against compromise. They also need to be highly available and ready to be called upon when required for a mission.
The main drone system challenges are: • The need for drone manufacturers to improve security by integrating methodical security practices into their development and manufacturing efforts. • Identifying and addressing the multiple points of integration within a city-wide drone system that can be used as attack vectors, including cloud-based software service. • Establishing stabilized and standardized regulations to recognize possible measures to deal with rogue drones, evidence collection options, no fly zones, etc. • The use of new, as yet unproven, algorithms to support automated operations and cooperation between drones. • The fact that drones will eventually be authorized for widespread Beyond Line of Sight (BLOS), operations and security engineers are expected to plan now to protect against future threats of integrating drone systems into national airspace.

Many indicators still show vendors consider security as an added cost and prefer to offer more features over protection. It is the responsibility of vendors to establish a safe and secure environment for drones’ operational quality and stability, if urbanized environments are to adopt them and benefit from their potential. It is also important for governments to implement regulations to enforce safe security standards and disallow the implementation of weak cyber security measures in live environments………………………………..

SECTECH sikkerhedsmesse

Under emnet “Internet of Things (IoT) og sikkerhed – fra smarte hjem til smarte byer” ser Sectechs anden minikonference, den 17. november, på, hvor vi er i dag, og hvordan udviklingen ser ud i de kommende år. Og hvordan passer sikkerhedsteknologien ind i Internet of Things og i de smarte projekter?
Smart City Catalysts Martin Tom-Petersen gav indsigt omkring IoT i Smart Cities og hvordan sikkerhedsbranchen har nye muligheder for at skabe sikkerhed og tryghed i byrummet. Men selv om byer verden over kappes om at skabe mest mulig tryghed og sikkerhed for deres borgere, har kun få set muligheden for at skabe denne tryghed og sikkerhed ved hjælp af IoT.

Andre foredrag den dag:

09.00 IoT giver mange muligheder i smarte bygninger – men hvad med sikkerhed og brandsikring?

James McHale

I 2020 vil markedet for Internet of Things i smarte bygninger have en værdi på 181 milliarder dollar. Teknikløsninger til fysisk sikkerhed og brandsikkerhed vil i 2020 være et af de største segmenter, når det drejer sig om systemtyper til IoT, hævder James McHale, markedsanalytiker hos analyseinstituttet Memoori.

På seminaret vil han fortælle om Iot-markedet: Hvor stort, det er, og hvilke muligheder er der for leverandører til smarte bygninger. Hvad driver udviklingen, og hvordan implementeres sikkerheden ind i IoT-projekterne i de intelligente bygninger?

Foredraget vil blive hold på engelsk.
Taler: James McHale, markedsanalytiker, Memoori.

9.30 ONVIF sikrer den effektive integration

Per Björkdahl

Den svenske integrationsekspert Per Björkdahl fortæller, hvordan organisationen ONVIF arbejder med at forsyne markedet med effektive kommunikationsgrænseflader til især netværksvideo, men også til adgangskontrol. Kravene til effektiv integration er også muligheden for at tilslutte enheder direkte til internet, hvor sikkerhed og informationsintegritet har fået en stor betydning.

Taler: Per Björkdahl.

10.00 Sikkerheden i Smart Cities

Martin Tom-Petersen

Du ved, at dit barn går på gaden. Du ved, hvornår hjemturen er startet, og hvornår den estimeret skal slutte, og hvem der ellers gik i samme retning. Og du ved besked, hvis dit barn kommer i nød. Internet of Things (IoT) i Smart Cities har uanede muligheder for at skabe sikkerhed og tryghed i bybilledet. Men selv om byer verden over kappes om at skabe mest mulig tryghed og sikkerhed for deres borgere, har kun få set muligheden for at skabe denne tryghed og sikkerhed ved hjælp af IoT – selv om løsningerne typisk er overkommelige, kosteffektive og lette at implementere – og selv om de har et bredt anvendelsesspektrum.

Taler: Martin Tom-Petersen, Client Director & Partner, Smart City Catalyst.

10.30 Truly Smart Cities must be Safe, Secure and Resilient

Glen Dale

Only when communication, energy, safety, security and mobility of goods and people function seamlessly, cities can offer their citizens quality of life and a flourishing economy. For city planners, the answer to these challenges is the “smart city.” The foundations are uniform standards for intelligent, secure and resilient infrastructure solutions. The exploding population is rapidly driving cities to their limits with respect to energy supply, security, digital communication, transportation and traffic. The concept of the smart city provides one answer. Its primary mission is to distribute existing resources efficiently. Networking individual supply systems through technical solutions should enable cities to respond dynamically to temporary demands, thus preserving their functionality.
