    Overview: A smart ecosystem can include any integrated digitally connected environment, such as a smart city, airport, transport network, power plant, or even a hospital. Smart ecosystem developments present extraordinary opportunities for municipal leaders to improve community operations and efficiencies. However, these developments inherently introduce a myriad of information security, privacy, and regulatory challenges. 

    So what can we do to make sure our smart cities are safe and resilient? Adopting a cyber-first approach, combining cyber controls throughout the smart ecosystem lifecycle, from conceptualization and requirements determination to integration/implementation, and finally to the operation phase, increases safety and resilience across the smart ecosystem.
