The potential for smart cities is incredible - both positive and negative. While we want to focus on the positive things, we also need to think very early on about the negative potentialities as well - and data security is among the largest.
This article gives a nice, 3-point summary of the key things leaders should think about and account for as they get into their journey to create smart cities. If you have not started talking about data security in your smart city infrastructure, this article should give you a good framework to start the discussion.
When security is properly accounted for in the early stages of smart city design, city leaders can confidently focus on achieving the outcomes and benefits smart cities deliver rather than suffer from a cyberbreach.
