Cybersecurity is key for the smart cities of tomorrow
An elaborate and choreographed network of millions of interconnected devices and sensors — otherwise known as the Internet of Things (IoT) — will be the backbone for the cities of tomorrow.
Already, small-scale projects — trash cans with sensors notifying garbage men when they are full to smart energy grids managing electricity demand — are part of the fabric of the urban infrastructure around the world.
But, we know this is just the beginning. The current potential market for smart cities is expected to reach $1 trillion by 2020 with 22.5 billion connected devices by 2021.
