GLOBAL CALL FOR SOLUTIONS: TECH, CITIES, COMMUNITY.

Challenges

DATA SECURITY & SAFETY

How to build a data-centric digital economy where data is available for broader communal use, with appropriate privacy protections?
Data security

Why is important?

The exponential growth of data collected and extracted from multiple sources is posing serious concerns over the way in which public and private information is managed (privacy), as well as over the vulnerability of the personal data we share. How to build a data-centric digital economy where data is available for broader communal use, with appropriate privacy protections? How successfully prevent frauds, misuse or other harnessing activities which could compromise public or private data centered assets (i.e. critical infrastructures) and data based operations?

What are we looking for?

  • Solutions to enable online and offline mapping of data and assets.
  • Protection for field-level components and industrial control systems (ICS).
  • Cybersecurity solutions for connected critical infrastructures and industries (e.g. electric power facilities, smart grids, digital factories, etc.).
  • Solutions to prevent system fraud as well as cyber-espionage and sabotage, ensuring continuous service and/or production system operations.
