    The growing use of ICT in public life has coerced the concept of smart cities. In a smart city, numerous physical devices coupled with latest ICT technologies are used by city authorities to provide better services and infrastructure to its citizens. Smart cities have unique security challenges. Owing to the involvement of numerous stakeholders, information security breaches can have wide ranging, long-lasting consequences. The challenges of smart city information security have not received the attention they deserve. This paper combines threat analysis and enterprise architecture modelling to address and mitigate these challenges from a holistic perspective. An information security architecture is presented, which can help stakeholders of the smart city projects to build more secure smart cities.
