The Future of Cities with Increasingly Dense Populations
Secure & Safe Urban Spaces Protected by Digitalization

December 14, 2017

The rapid globalization and urbanization in recent years have energized the migration of people and things.

As trends shift towards greater concentration of global populations and economies in urban areas, crime and terrorism as well as other risk factors grow in cities and generate concern about the vast potential harm.

Furthermore, new types of crime unable to be prevented by conventional means are also beginning to increase as individuals gain greater power to more dramatically impact the world through the prevalence of the Internet.
