About the evolution of technology, Jorge Sebastiao said: “The evolution of technology and its impact has been dramatic, 25 years ago internet connection points, for example in Saudi Arabia, were hard to find. Whereas now there is high-speed connectivity everywhere. The Middle East went from nothing to having all these high-end technology in a very short period of time. It has been impressive.”
“Technology is playing a key role in the coronavirus crisis, for example through people’s mobile phones. Governments can track people’s movement and enforce self-isolation more effectively. Another measure that some governments have started to use is tracking the spread of the pandemic. GPS tracking can help determine if positive cases have been in touch with one another.”
Talking on recent interview for citiesabc, Jorge Sebastiao said about cybersecurity the following: “The problem is not what we know, but what we don’t. 30 years ago we didn’t use the security belt and now we have many different security systems to keep us safe in cars. That doesn’t mean that the accidents will suddenly stop. It only means that we are less likely to get injured.” In a Smart City context, as much as in any other organization, there should be a specific cyber security department to identify and keep all the technologies and processes safe. In these cities, a correct deployment of 5G, IoT and Big Data will make a huge difference in terms of cyber security but also improving the efficiency of systems and the collection and use of meaningful data.”
