Today’s cities and communities, and their residents, are increasingly connected. Real-time data analysis guides civic decisions more than ever before, allowing communities to deliver services and deploy resources as efficiently as possible. At the same time, connected smart city devices raise concerns about individuals’ privacy, autonomy, and freedom of choice, as well as potential discrimination by institutions.

Learn how Smart City leaders are developing best practices for assessing and mitigating privacy risks to individuals and communities, and putting ethics, equity, and inclusive public engagement at the forefront of their data privacy policies.
