Having a clear and definitive point of view on how your city’s smart systems will build upon one another will make your ability to promote the overarching concept of smart cities easier and more digestible to your constituencies along the way. Similarly, starting your smart city initiative with a project that is likely to immediately resonate with the public will pay off in dividends of support and even advocacy in the long run.
The GDPR requires products to incorporate data protection by design and for companies to disclose any data breach immediately, reporting it to European regulators regardless of the company’s location as long as the data collected is on European citizens or residents. Fines for noncompliance start at €20 million ($25 million) and can be up to 4% of the global revenue of a company. While this is a European regulation, it has global impact. “It will apply to the processing of personal data by controllers and processors in the EU, regardless of whether the processing takes place in the EU or not,” according to the European Union website.
