Technical Committee on Sustainable Cities and Communities | ISO/TC 268
This committee, convened solely by ISO, develops standards on the requirements, frameworks, guidance, and tools to build resilient and sustainable smart cities and communities. Systems designed based on Internet of Things (IoT) models can capture extensive data and create an environment that normalises constant tracking and monitoring. The committee defines basic concepts and develops specifications for measurement, reporting, and verification of these technologies. The centralisation and integration of data for vital infrastructure and services could lead to increased data breaches or attacks, privacy issues, and pervasive government surveillance.
