To understand the cyber and privacy challenges facing Smart Cities and Industry 4.0 initiatives you need to understand how they are designed, built and operated. Without such insight the ability to get involved from the outset is remote. If your security framework engagement model and interfaces do not align to the design and build process you will always be considered an afterthought. The IoTSI identified this critical imperative early in our development process.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is a dynamic global network infrastructure of selfconfiguringThe Internet of Things (IoT) is a dynamic global network infrastructure of selfconfiguringphysical objects, embedded with connectivity protocols to enable collectionand exchange of data and communication with other smart objects. Theobjects, or things in the network, react autonomously to events, without requiringman-machine intervention in real time. The IoT vision revolves around increasedmachine-to-machine communication, built on the cloud computing paradigm andnetworks of data-gathering sensors. This is now the vision of the Internet of thefuture that has the potential to revolutionize pervasive computing and itsapplications.

With the convergence of information andWith the convergence of information andtelecommunication technologies, the vision of the ‘Smart City’ isfast becoming a reality. City governments in a growing numberof countries are capitalizing on these advances to enhance thelives of their citizens and to increase efficiency and sustainability.In this paper, we elaborate on smartCityRA, a referencearchitecture for Smart City projects, which serves as the designlanguage for creating smart cities blueprints. Such a blueprintcaters for diverse stakeholders, devices, platforms, and technologies.

The concept of Cybersecurity Culture (CSC) refers to the knowledge, beliefs, perceptions, attitudes, assumptions, norms and values of people regarding cybersecurity and how they manifest themselves in people’s behaviour with information technologies. CSC encompasses familiar topics including cybersecurity awareness and information security frameworks but is broader in both scope and application, being concerned with making information security considerations an integral part of an employee’s job, habits and conduct, embedding them in their day-to-day actions.
