UK National Cyber Security Centre issues a guide about smart cities

UK National Cyber Security Centre publishes a guide about smart city cybersecurity. The guide titled Connected Places CyberSecurity Principles aims to help UK local and national authorities develop awareness and understanding of the security considerations needed to design, construct, and manage their connected places. The guide recommends a set of principles that will help ensure the security of a connected place and its infrastructure. The guide applies to functions such as traffic light management, CCTV, waste management, streetlight management, parking management, transport services, and public services (such as health/social care or emergency services).
