Understanding the risks of smart city technologies
I'm Alex Pan, a PhD student in Transportation Engineering at the University of California, Berkeley. I am working on a project about the cybersecurity of smart city technologies run by Professors Alison Post and Karen Trapenberg Frick. The aim of the project is to understand variation in the vulnerabilities of different smart city technologies to cyberattack, as well as the variation in the extent to which different technologies are likely to be targeted and the potential impacts of successful cyberattacks. The project is funded by the Center for Long-Term Cybersecurity at Berkeley.
As part of this project, we have developed a 15-minute survey for IT professionals and security experts to learn more about your assessment of the vulnerabilities, threats, and consequences of cyberattacks to technologies such as smart traffic lights, street video surveillance, and smart meters. Many new technologies are currently being considered for adoption by local government agencies, so we want to provide insights drawing on the expertise of security professionals and disseminate these findings to policy-makers, professionals, and researchers.
We are very grateful for your time and help! The survey will close August 14th, 2020 and for every completed response, we will be donating $10 to Feeding America's COVID-19 Response Fund. Our findings will be summarized in a report and distributed to the (ISC)2 community.
