The ACSC has released a new publication An Introduction to Securing Smart Places to assist public and private organisations in securely implementing and sustaining smart place technology. The highly connected nature of our cities and towns’ public and private infrastructure creates efficiencies but also presents an increased risk profile. As smart places continue to evolve in Australia, it is imperative that organisations understand the cyber security risks involved when considering and implementing the associated technologies and systems. This publication is influenced by research conducted by the ACSC and provides an overview of common security risks and mitigation advice to better secure smart places and the underpinning technologies. This is an introductory publication. ACSC is planning to release further smart places-related publications in 2023.
