3. Setting Guardrails
Are city governments prepared to address the potential impacts and very real risks of technology with surveillance implications? Few municipalities have meaningful policy in place to address the potential impacts of these sorts of technologies. In this, our third and final episode of City Surveillance Watch, we assess the current state of government policy and law for surveillance tech (hint: there isn’t much), and we offer practical tools and advice. Find out how municipalities that are ahead-of-the-curve are crafting surveillance tech policy, and get guidance for how cities - even those with few resources - can upgrade traditional tech procurement processes to ensure a solid footing to contend with rapidly evolving tech use and its potential impact on communities.
