Building and operating a smart city can only be based on solid foundations. However, such solid foundations - for example architectural, mechanical, IT, security, etc. factors - are unavailable or incomplete in most cases. Consequently, the process should begin with their design and construction. A construction site and its arrangement changes day by day. The building process of the structure of a building may be an important change, as, for example, after the substructure phase, the construction of a new level is completed in every two weeks, or after finishing the structure, the internal walls and the infrastructure of the building are added. These changes on the site, and the resources, needs, rules, and (work) processes necessary for such changes also keep changing. From the aspect of safety-science this means that new threats appear, the frequency of potential risks changes, and the extent of damage changes. The purpose of this article is to briefly describe the security issues relating to the building processes of smart cities, highlighting the field of information security.
