New York City, Amsterdam and Barcelona have recently kicked off a new cooperative movement to protect citizens’ digital rights, including internet access and data. This coalition marks the first international agreement between Cities to develop policies to protect residents’ privacy while encouraging an active, digital life. Officials from the three participants plan to share best practices and coordinate on initiatives around digital literacy, transparency and non-discrimination of data, content and algorithms, participatory democracy, and ethical digital standards.
Personal privacy and data protection is a hot topic for most Smart Cities, and it will be widely discussed at e-GIC 2018 conference, taking place in Benalmádena (Spain) on November 22nd and 23rd.
We are joining the event as sponsors and presenting our vision for data-driven Cities, where quality and efficient urban services are available to all residents meeting the highest possible security requirements. Be welcome at our speech ‘Enabling Smarter Cities‘ on November 23rd at 9:45am.
