Intensive release of cybersecurity policy lays the foundation
for the healthy development of smart cities
The real space is a mirror of the virtual space. The insecurities in the process of urban development will also be reflected in the virtual space.
From the "PRISM" event that threatened the security of all countries in 2013 to the "WannaCry" ransomware event that affected various industries in 2017, each incident is a reminder that for smart cities to develop, network security needs to go first.
The policies of China always put social stability and human well-being and property security as a priority. Since 2016, China has released multiple policies such as "Cybersecurity Law of the People's Republic of China", "Critical Information Infrastructure Security Protection Regulations (Opinion-seeking Draft)", "Information Security Protection of Industrial Control Systems Guidelines", "Government Cloud Requirements".These policies lay a strong foundation for high standards and strict requirements of cybersecurity protection for infrastructure operators, critical information infrastructure to ensure optimal operation of smart cities.
Venustech Strategic Blueprint
Security Operation Center for Smart Cities
Smart cities involve a large number of sensors collecting and sending data to the base station and other Internet-enabled devices that communicate with each other to process data. These sensors provide essential city services and infrastructure across a broad range of domains such as government affairs, health care, social security, and transportations. Cybersecurity measures must protect this data from tampering and unauthorized access.
It is undoubtedly an arduous task in the process of smart city development to ensure Big Data privacy and confidentiality.
On the other hand, in the face of increasingly frequent, diverse, and rapid cyberattacks, how to make smart cities based on security and credibility, supporting the stable operation of information society and healthy development has also become an urgent problem to be solved.
Venustech Group is committed to solving the current multifaceted security problems through an independent “third-party” security operation center. It has been setting up independent security operation centers for smart cities in China since 2016.
Since the official opening of the Chengdu Security Operation Center (Beidou Security Operation Center in West Region) in December 2017, more than 20 security operation centers have been built orunder construction nationwide.
The Security Operations Center provides real-time monitoring of all kinds of data, detection of security events, and continuous threat intelligence updates of the infrastructure.The SOC enables users to visualize the current network and business system health status and future trends through the application of artificial intelligence, big data analysis, and other technologies.
SOC teams are made up of management, security analysts, and security engineers. The SOC works with R&D and IT operations teams to manage cybersecurity risks for all kinds of business systems. The SOC team offers users security expert services including but not limited to: incident analysis and auditing, risk assessment and measurement, early warning and response, security situation analysis, and continuous security operations with standardized process management.
