Building Resilient Cities: Understanding the Cyber Threat Impact of COVID-19
Apr 30, 2020
National, state, and local governments are facing increased threats from hackers looking to exploit the COVID-19 public health crisis. Smart city devices, albeit a critical aspect of urban development, can heighten the level risk due to the increased number of endpoints malicious actors can target. Their interconnected nature blur the lines between the digital and physical, creating a substantial threat with a potentially devastating impact. With the persistent wave of cyberattacks against local governments, cities are facing increased pressure to secure the technologies that permeate everyday life.
