This best practices guidance is the result of a collaborative effort from CISA, the National Security Agency (NSA), the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the United Kingdom National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC-UK), the Australian Cybersecurity Centre (ACSC), the Canadian Centre for Cyber Security (CCCS), and the New Zealand National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC-NZ).

It provides an overview of risks to smart cities including expanded and interconnected attack surfaces; information and communications technologies (ICT) supply chain risks; and increasing automation of infrastructure operations. To protect against these risks, the government partners offer three recommendations to help communities strengthen their cyber posture: secure planning and design, proactive supply chain risk management, and operational resilience.
