GovX Show #39: How to Create Smarter, Safer Cities

Connected Cities are harnessing the power of technology to create places fit for the future, in which commercial, residential and leisure activities happily co-exist. Underpinning those elements is security and resilience - so how do local government organisations create safe, secure, smart cities where people want to live, work and play?   

Daniel Bloodworth, Director of Emerging Technologies at resilience software company Everbridge, joins us on The GovX Show to explain how security's role in public sector place-making has been transformed in recent years, to become an enabler that can encourage investment and build community cohesion.
