"Ensuring smart cities are safe is paramount for the post-Covid world and our latest virtual conference will explain what the future of these innovative spaces will look like and how developments in technology can enable both citizens and businesses to enjoy smart cities securely. CyNam 21.2 will look at the challenges and opportunities we will need to face now to make this a reality."
