Building Smart Cities of the Future Takes a Team of Experts

I am honored to join the World Smart Cities Economic Development Commission Advisory Board of the World Business Angels Investment Forum (WBAF), a partner of the G20 Global Partnership for Financial Inclusion (GPFI), to support job growth, digital inclusion, and social justice worldwide. 


I am joining the team that will help guide the investment and development of safe and beneficial smart cities across the globe. 

These communities will showcase the great economic, societal, and personal benefits of digital technology. 

Smart Cities will become important hubs where digital technology improves the daily lives of its citizens, fuels economic growth, and reduces city overhead administration costs. 

This value will attract cyber threats seeking to disrupt services, commit online crime, and harvest sensitive data. 

Cybersecurity must roll-out with the great innovations of smart cities to grow in a secure, private, and safe manner for the benefit of everyone. 

Trust is the backbone of longevity for successful digital adoption.

The investment and development of smart cities will accelerate the benefits of digital transformation to communities around the globe. 

The economic, societal, and personal benefits will thrive if progress is well-planned and risks properly mitigated. 

I am excited to be part of the team, as a cybersecurity expert on the Advisory Board, to help build secure, private, and safe smart cities of the future.
