Identifying Third-Party Vendor Risk to Smart City Safety and Security

Smart cities and the IoT and IIoT applications that “run” them are highly vulnerable to third-party vendor risk. Vendor risk management is important when hiring a third-party vendor to provide a smart city technology solution or conduct the installation.

IoT and IIoT devices used within smart city networks are not only often interconnected, but run off of a singular network that can be easily compromised if security gaps and vulnerabilities are created by third-party vendors.

Make sure your smart city safety and security can stand up to an attack or threat with a vendor risk assessment.
