Cybersecurity Symposium for Smart Cities 2019
The EastWest Institute will co-organize the Cybersecurity Symposium for Smart Cities 2019, to be held on October 5 in Santa Clara, CA.
As part of EWI's involvement in Cybersecurity Awareness Month, the full-day event will help small to medium enterprises and local governments prepare for designing smart city platforms while ensuring security against cyber threats. Participants will include national and international experts in securing smart cities representing government, private, nonprofit and academic sectors. Additional lead organizations include the Global Cities Teams Challenge, Adaptable Security, Joint Venture Silicon Valley and the Silicon Valley Chinese Technology and Business Association.
The event will be hosted by the County of Santa Clara Government Center.
The event builds upon EWI's leadership efforts in the space, supporting its report: Smart and Safe Risk Reduction in Tomorrow’s Cities, published earlier this year.
