EDIFICOM represented at ASIS Europe 2017 (29-31 March 2017 – Milan, Italy)

In his roles of chairman of the “Secure Smart Cities Working Group” created by the ASIS Switzerland and Cyber Security Researcher at the University of Lausanne, our own Chairman, Fabrice Consenti, will hold a conference on Friday March 31st at the ASIS Europe 2017 meeting in Milan (Italy) covering the topic “Beyond Trends and Buzzwords: Security and Resilience Issues and Opportunities Offered by Smart City Projects”.

Europe is at the forefront of developing smart city projects. Yet, aspects of governance, security and resilience are often not clearly featured and explained. In contrast, information technology is massively involved in the development of the smart city without security being embedded by design. This presentation intends to outline the many challenges faced by smart city projects and how the security practitioners of all specialities are concerned, either as relatively passive actors or as solution providers.

Topics in focus will be:

  • Internet of Things: the security challenges;
  • Big Data, Smart Cities and the European General Data Protection Regulation;
  • Governance and Public/Private Partnership;
  • The role of authorities in the development of smart city projects;
  • Collaboration and regulation are key to sustainable city.

He will conclude by showing some of the many opportunities the smart city concept offer to the security profession.

Please contact Fabrice Consenti if you plan to be in Milan from 29th to 31st of March. He will be pleased to arrange his agenda to meet you.
