Technical Director of the United Kingdom’s National Cyber Security Centre, Ian Levy, said in a recent blog “we need to ensure we address the cyber security issues to ensure our cities are safe and resilient” because while failures within individual systems can have terrible impacts, the effects are magnified in our increasingly connected world.
