SAFE CITIES: USING SMART TECHNOLOGY FOR PUBLIC SECURITY
Mairura Omwenje- Chairman; Town and Country Planners Association of Kenya (TCPAK)
The world’s cities are bursting at the seams, civic resources are under pressure and crime is harder than ever to police. As it stands, most video surveillance technology is inefficient. Police investigations are often hampered by blind spots in video networks and low-quality imagery. In Nairobi, Kenya, Huawei has put in place a new communications network that links 1,800 surveillance cameras with 195 police bureaus and 7,600 police officers. The new infrastructure, commissioned by president Uhuru Kenyatta, is of strategic importance in terms of both national and economic security.

INTERNET OF THINGS AND SECURITY IN THE 21ST CENTURY
Michael Perry- Director Technology at G4S Africa
As the frequency and costs of security incidents continue to rise, research indicates that many organisations have not updated critical information security processes, technologies, and employee training needs.
In some cases, it appears that information security programmes have weakened due to inadequate investments in information security. At the same time, the financial costs of investigating and mitigating incidents grow year over year. Compromises by insiders—current and former employees, as well as third parties with trusted network access—continue to rise, but many organisations have not implemented processes and technologies to address internal incidents. No matter how secure an organisation’s network and data, it will be open to compromise if third parties do not employ equivalent security and privacy safeguards.
Find out what basic security safeguards businesses can implement to manage today’s elevated threats.
