Vulnerabilities in Smart Cities: An overview of security risks and prevention practices

Title:
Vulnerabilities in Smart Cities: An overview of security risks and prevention practices
Abstract:
The implementation of the Internet of Things (IoT) in smart cities fuels the rapid expansion of information technologies in everyday life. This ongoing digitalization development brings benefits, but also many security vulnerabilities in urban settings of both technical and social nature. The practices in some implemented smart cities have revealed a number of risks, but the expansion of further innovations and interconnections of digital tools and infrastructures involves many uncertainties about possible usages and their security consequences. Based on a review of the publications in leading academic journals we present an overview of risks and practices of how security vulnerabilities are expected, prevented and/or ignored in the making of smart cities.
