Privacy and security aspects of E-government in smart cities

Yang, Longzhi, Elisa, Noe and Eliot, Neil (2019) Privacy and security aspects of E-government in smart cities. In: Smart cities cybersecurity and privacy. Elsevier, pp. 211-102. ISBN 978-0-12-815032-0

Item Type: Book Section


The chapter focuses on building a theoretical network, which supports the
protection of home networks from critical cyberattacks. A framework is proposed
which aims to augment a home router with machine learning techniques to identify
threats. During the current pandemic, employees have been working from home. So
it is reasonable to expect that cyberattacks on households will becomemore common
to leverage access into corporate networks. Themodel described in this chapter is for
a single network; however, the network would be segmented into regions to avoid a
wider compromise. Since the deployment of 5G, mobile threats are rising steadily.
Therefore, the UK requires a robust plan to identify and mitigate all forms of threats
including nation-state, terrorism, hacktivism. Additionally, the model dynamically
analyses traffic to identify trends and patterns; therefore, supporting on the building
of a resilient cyber defence. The emphasis in this model is to bridge the gap of trust
between the government and the public, so that trust and transparency is established
by a regulatory framework with security recommendations. At present, there is no
authorisation to collect this data at national level, nor is there trust between the public
and government regarding data and storage. It is hoped that this model would change
human perception on the collection of data and contribute to a safer UK.
