Smart Infrastructures comprise several operators from different domains of activity, such as energy, public transport, public safety. They deploy and operate “cyber-physical systems”, that are data-controlled equipment which interact with the physical world. They collaborate and exchange data under several schemes, depending on their level of maturity.
The usage of cyber-physical devices (software-controlled devices that interact with the physical world) bring new risks: on the economy and on the safety of citizens.
Recent trends see Critical Infrastructures migrating toward Smart Infrastructures by deploying IoT. They invest on remote management and big data to improve the quality of service.
ENISA develops guidance to secure Smart Infrastructures from cyber threats, by highlighting good security practices and proposing recommendations to operators, manufacturers and decision makers. For that purpose, ENISA follows a sectorial approach in the following domains:
- Smart Cars
- Smart Homes
- Smart Cities
