Going Native: Citizens, Smart Cities, and Security
In this session I will provide a unique point of view, informed by real-world success stories, on how Smart City security can help to maximize the ROI of ‘smart’ projects while meaningfully engaging citizens. Smart City success will come from many micro mobile-interactions with the smart infrastructure rather than one monolithic smart-city solution. This usage pattern changes the security user experience for citizens, developers, and those responsible for smart city security in ways that are important to explicitly highlight.
In today’s digitally transformed world, Smart City owners need to deeply consider customer experience, especially as it pertains to security and identity. Security cannot be an afterthought or an add-on.
Value will be extracted from Smart City infrastructures by software. As more Smart City software is created, we must ask hard security questions:
- What can infrastructure owners do to ensure that the software written delivers the best security experience possible?
- How can security officers ensure security and compliance, while enabling developers to create the most secure, native experience, their citizens require?
- What is a model for success?
Attendees will gain important insights into valuing and evaluating their smart city efforts in order to maximize their impact on people’s lives.
I’ll be hosting a Smart City Panel and one other session at CA World this year.
Session #1: Digital Transformation in Financial Services
What is digital transformation? How does it impact the financial services industry? How will PSD2 and other global regulations change banking and the banking value proposition? Most importantly, how should banks change their approach to technology in order to maximize customer value and adapt constructively to the modern technology world.
Session #2: Industry 4.0, Opportunities and Challenges in IoT
There’s gold hidden in the data of any organization, and IoT data and insight (along with ML and AI) is going to create more opportunity than most can manage. How should an organization think about these opportunities in order to maximize technology ROI? How do we ensure the right security posture, so that an IoT infrastructure can be agile but remain secure?
I’ll be moderating a panel of executives discussing their success and opinions about application modernization for smart city programs.
The Next-Gen Installation: It Starts With a Single Factory
The cities of tomorrow will look way different from a technology standpoint. Let’s talk about how government can modernize and connect its infrastructure and campuses while the Department of Defense improves its continuity of operations through a next-generation installation. A single Software Factory can build the next generation of services required for smart operating bases, transportation and public safety systems and logistics and supply chain management.
