Event Hub: Cyber4Good

Advances in the internet of things, big data and artificial intelligence are creating immense potential for better public services; but they all come with new risks, especially with the growing array of internet connected devices and new sources of data.

Cyber attackers can find new weak points and vulnerabilities, posing a serious threat to the data integrity and operational capabilities of public authorities.
