ABSTRACT

This workshop focuses on strengthening cyber workforces and helping to build cyber resiliency in smart cities, large and small. Rapid advances in technology, including AI and ML, the Internet of Things (IoT) and 5G capabilities, and big data increases provide both opportunities and risks for smart cities. In this workshop, George Mason University (GMU) researchers combine AI & ML with NIST’s National Cybersecurity Workforce Framework, and other partners, plus experiences with real-world state and city governments to address the current and projected shortage of cybersecurity workers at the human-technology frontier. These capabilities can improve training, offset shortages in some positions, enhance collaboration across jurisdictions and facilitate interactions with constituents. They also can help improve cyber resiliency—the ability to absorb cyberattacks, adapt to changing situations, and emerge stronger.
