FORT MEADE, Md. – The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), National Security Agency (NSA), and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) are partnering with international partners’ cybersecurity agencies to publish cybersecurity best practices for smart cities, which integrate public services into a connected environment to increase efficiencies and improve the quality of life in various communities.

Seven agencies from five countries have published the Cybersecurity Information Sheet “Cybersecurity Best Practices for Smart Cities,” highlighting how the integration of operational technology into a connected environment has many benefits but can also be an attractive target for malicious cyber actors to steal critical infrastructure data and proprietary information, conduct ransomware operations, or launch destructive cyberattacks.
