Data and Cyber Security webinar, covering digital transformation, data quality and safeguarding controls.

About this Event


This event is the third in our series of Smart City events, aiming to bring together Smart City innovators and businesses with real challenges and solutions, helping our Smart City economy to engage, share ideas and move the conversation forward to tangible outcomes.

The online event will include presentations and discussion focusing on Data and Cyber Security, and will cover topics including the risks of digital transformation and connected devices, data science and smart city applications, secure by design practices, and safeguarding controls for data integration and sharing.

The topics of data and cyber security are ever more relevant as the world and cities in which we live have had to adapt to a more digitally reliant way of working.

Organised by Sensor City and Whitecap Consulting, the webinar is free to attend and will feature a range of speakers and panelists, alongside Q&A opportunities.


This event will be run online, via Zoom.

Following the headline presentations and panel discussions, a participant-led Q&A session will take place, providing an opportunity for you to delve deeper into a particular area of interest, pick the experts’ brains or ask any queries you have specific to the topics covered.

We would encourage innovators, city stakeholders, students, businesses, technicians, public sector bodies, researchers and anyone else with an interest in smart cities, data and cyber security to take part.
