The transportation sector is increasingly benefiting from the latest technological advancements, but like for smart cities, these come with opportunities as much as with challenges.

In the second article, ICAO analysts focus on the aviation sector, urging  states and stakeholders to adopt the Beijing Convention for dealing effectively with cyberattacks.

We close with a piece on how cybersecurity threats can affect our smart cities. Adrian Crawley, VP Emea for Synack, argues that all efforts to make urban centres greener “need security built-in from the beginning”.
