ISS-(ISC)2 Seminar: Singapore Security Direction and Approaches to Smart Nation Implementation

ISS-(ISC)2 Seminar: Singapore Security Direction and Approaches to Smart Nation Implementation

Smart City is an alluring vision of the future and never before have we experienced so many facets of security threats due to the increasing interconnectivity of a smart city. For the longest time, city infrastructures have been built independently and operated separately in parallel silos. The development of a secure smart city requires a wider collaboration between all key pillars, namely ICT infrastructure and capacity building. Join us and listen to expertise from a wide range of stakeholders and engage in a discussion on how we can orchestrate to build secure and sustainable smart cities.
