Speed bumps on the way to smart cities

Data security concerns are still the top hurdle to the adoption of initiatives involving connected devices, including smart-city deployments, per 451 Research.

According to research released this week by Parks Associates, 63% of the general public are concerned about cybersecurity, and 71% of people with smart devices are concerned about cybersecurity.

Skepticism over how companies working with city governments are using citizen data can slow down the process of getting public buy-in for projects that involve data collection.
