Smart City Cybersecurity Lab (SCL) is a cluster collaboration between Danish cities, organizations and universities to strengthen network and capabilities in data security, privacy and governance in the development of smart city solutions. The goal is to increase the stability and robustness of the cities and organizations’ operations, and provide the necessary trust and security for the citizens of the collection and use of data.
SCL organizes open events, tests and demonstrates smart city challenges and solutions for reliability, data security and privacy in relation to the development and operation as well as developing and disseminating network, skills, knowledge, research results and best practices. SCL is an open network and reflects a triple-helix collaboration model, involving actors from both public authorities, private companies and research institutions at both national and international levels.
The partners behind the initiative are the municipalities of Albertslund, Ballerup, Frederiksberg, Vallensbæk as well as Banedanmark, Capital Region of Denmark, Gate21, Technical University of Denmark and The Danish Society of Engineers, IDA.
