The movement to make cities smarter, which is transforming municipal governments worldwide into disparate ecosystems of cutting-edge technologies, is also making cities unique targets for cybercriminals. To manage these threats requires security professionals who are comfortable managing risk across both legacy and smart technologies to create security programs that allow innovation safely amid the chaos.

Gary Hayslip, co-author of the CISO Desk Reference Guide and author of the just released book for small business cyber professionals: “The Essential Guide to Cybersecurity for SMBs” will be speaking at RSA, addressing this topic in a session titled: “How Smart Cities Become Wise.” This session will be held on Thursday the 27th at 1:30 PM in PDAC-R07 which is in Moscone West 3009.

After his talk, Gary will be signing books at the RSA bookstore.
