SA 31 - Securing the Digital City: Cyber threats and Responses

Munish Khetrapal, Director, Business Development, Smart+Connected Communities, Cisco

Current economic and political stakes worldwide, terrorism and natural disasters have changed the nature of urban safety. Today, securing public safety means addressing a wide and evolving range of risks, including new cyberthreats resulting from the use of internet connected devices and digital platforms enabling to better serve citizens. Thus, critical nodes and arteries that together comprise urban infrastructure systems related to energy, food, water, sewerage and communications must be able to withstand new external shocks. City leaders need to ensure they are robust enough, plan for emergencies and empower people to take responsibility to contribute to safety and resilience. The use of real‐time data and intelligent algorithms may be of help, provided citizens’ privacy is protected. How can local governments use the participatory approach to improve community engagement in prevention to develop safer cities and encourage citizens’ well‐being?

PL 03 - Strategic Alliances to Ensure a Green and Sustainable Urban

Anil Menon, Global President, Smart+Connected Communities, Cisco

Shaping green and sustainable zero carbon cities is not a superficial process or a marketing stunt. It requires political will and citizen responsibility to collectively design solutions against major issues relating to energy, waste management, resource supply, mobility and logistics. What are the alliances to be created to collaboratively achieve this goal? What are the best strategies to develop a green and sustainable urban future?

EC 52 - Municipalities Addressing Financial Challenges

Arvind Satyam, Director, Business Development, Smart+Connected Communities, Cisco

Cities are at the forefront of economic changes and development. Yet, many old recipes to boost urban economy have been found to have their limits as they are unsustainable or benefit just a small group. In recent years, peer‐to‐peer markets, collectively known as the sharing economy, have shaken the established models and disrupted transportation, accommodation and an array of other sectors. Parallelly, new proposals from the bottom‐up, such as Produsage, based on open participation and communal evaluation, are thriving with the implicit commitment to increase equity, sustainability, resilience and diversity. Yet, this dynamic urban economic landscape grows on a world stage committed to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and a new methodology to respond to current public procurement issues. How can governments address these challenges while funding their smart initiatives? Is there room for a more proactive urban policy to grasp emerging opportunities?
