“Smart Cities” Are Too Smart for Your Privacy

"Smart Cities" Are Too Smart for Your Privacy

“Smart Cities” Are Too Smart for Your Privacy” is published by The Center for Internet and Society at Stanford Law School.

From the intro:

No one wants to live in a “dumb” city.  But I question whether anyone ought to want to live in a really smart city either.  I’d prefer to just live in a smarter city — one that puts my privacy and security first before rolling out ubiquitous sensors and broad-scale data collection in the name of some larger public good.

I understand the promise of smart cities and I personally embrace technology as a means to improve our lives. But privacy so far has been an afterthought in the smart city discussion, if it is even considered at all.

I specialize in preventing and defeating the unthinkable – threats through which computers could turn people’s physical lives upside-down. From my start in law enforcement more than 25 years ago, I came to focus on emerging threats of cyber-kinetic attacks – cyberattacks on Internet of Things (IoT) and Industrial Control Systems (ICS) that threaten people’s physical well-being, lives or the environment. Now, as a Partner in PwC, I bring this expertise to businesses to help them defeat these often-overlooked – but potentially deadly – hazards.
