Combining digital, intelligent, smart and sustainable initiatives to deploy technologies to efficiently enhance security and information flow.
Urban centres are seeing increasing security complexity and threats and individual services working in isolation cannot ensure a safe city. National and local governments are responsible for ensuring that the different security services’ such as Counter Terrorism, Cyber Security and Emergency Services, collaborate on strategy, the technologies they use and that they are able to communicate effectively between themselves.
