Public safety is key for the well-being of citizens, and cities are increasingly aware of how vulnerable people can be to crime and violence in public spaces. This session will gather various city planning successful experiences that have integrated civic engagement. How can collaboration enhance public safety? How can decision-makers seize the opportunities that technologies such as IoT, artificial intelligence or surveillance, among others, can bring for the betterment of urban security?

The use of data collected by new technologies for the benefit of cities is increasingly discussed. This data can even understand behaviors, and detect suspicious activities and violence, but are citizens still reluctant? How do manage data, security, and privacy? What are the efforts to include these technologies in the urban sphere gaining the trust of citizens? This session will explore what data is capable of, while mitigating the concerns about data privacy and transparency.

The digital transformation of cities and their infrastructures is accelerating the rate of cyber threats. City surveillance and cybersecurity strategies must be conceived as a priority, as many cities are integrating more digital services and infrastructure, through data and innovative devices, among others. This session will debate how can we help cities keep their secure and resilient digital environment, and how governments, urban planners and key actors should approach this challenge.

As cities expand in size and population, and in a context where digital and physical threats continue to increase, the demand for responsive safety and security in cities, from a holistic and people-centric perspective, grows. How can city governments respond to safety and security challenges in a tailored manner that directly improves people’s lives? How to establish flexible and resilient enough systems so that they can rapidly adapt to hazards and new dangers?

The world’s population living in cities is rising, and the increasing urban density encompasses some urban risks, from security to climate change, natural disasters or pandemics. Current and future crises put cities at the forefront of adaptability and resilience. To overcome susceptibility and vulnerability, as well as building a resilient future, how can governments implement risk prevention and mitigation strategies?

Smart cities and utilities are an increasingly interesting target of cyberattacks that could potentially disrupt essential critical services. Being 100 per cent cybersecure is an impossible goal – but we can succeed in becoming 100 per cent cybersecurity aware and ready to anticipate, mitigate and remove vulnerabilities and risks.

Come and join us in the discussion about Smart Cities and Cybersecurity over a cup of coffee and pastries.
