Cyber Protection Officer
South West Regional Cyber Crime Unit
Having spent a great deal of time in Japan and South Korea I have seen the potential for smart cities to greatly improve the quality of life of our cities inhabitants. Working for the Police Cyber Crime Unit has meant that I also see the threats that intelligent infrastructure can pose if incorrectly implemented. The risks currently outweigh the benefits. I believe that a change in our way of thinking could mean that smart cities become a safer reality sooner rather than later.
