This assignment is designed to get you to reflect on your personal approach and feelings on information security and privacy.
Read: 
Lau, Y XXXXXXXXXXCybercrime in cloud: Risks and responses in Hong Kong, Singapore. In Ko, R., & Choo, K.(Eds XXXXXXXXXXThe Cloud Security Ecosystem: Technical, Legal, Business and Management Issues. Waltham, MA: Syngress.
This chapter discusses some of the approaches to cybercrime that are taken by both the Hong Kong and Singapore governments. But, any approach to cybercrime comes with risks to information security and privacy.
Tasks: 
Assume that an Australian State Government has reviewed the Singapore Government’s Smart Nation Plan and has decided to implement their own Smart State Plan. This will initially consist of a network of smart sensors and cameras at traffic lights, bus stops, ru
ish bins, etc. in their CBD to monitor citizens behaviour and address street crime.
1. Discuss what you see as the personal and ethical implications for your privacy of the proposed Government’s Smart Sensor Network by looking at:
a. The types or categories of people affected by this proposal, 
. What behavioural changes you might expect to see from normal citizens,
c. Would you expect to see changes in individual behaviours, such as choice of activities, changes in time schedules, etc.
The next part of the Government’s plan is to deploy a Smart WiFi Network which will consist of a series of sensor boxes to act as WiFi hotspots throughout the city. This would allow the introduction of a heterogeneous network where smart phones and other devices could seamless switch between mobile data and WiFi.
2. Discuss what you see as the personal and ethical implications for your privacy of the proposed Government’s Smart WiFi Network by looking at:
a. The types or categories of people affected by this proposal,
. What behavioural changes you might expect to see from normal citizens using their mobile devices in the CBD,
c. Would you expect to see changes in individual behaviours, such as choice of activities, changes in time schedules, etc.
d. What are the implications for you If you had sensitive information on your mobile device that you did not want to share?
The Smart State Plan will also enrol all citizens with a Digital Identity to ensure that they can co
ectly be identified and access services provided by the state both electronically and physically.
3. If you were visiting the State Capital after the Smart State Plan has rolled out, do you think that the use of a digital identity would assist you to maintain your privacy while using your mobile phone or devices during your visit? Discuss the reasons for your answer.  
4. What steps do you think that you could take to ensure the security and privacy of your digital identity while operating your mobile device(s) in this environment? Discuss each step that you would take along with its advantages and disadvantages.   
Each question is worth 25 marks and your overall score will be scaled out of 10. As a guide, your word limit for this assignment should be around 3,000 words.

PRIVACY AND SECURITY REFLECTION
Executive Summary
This assignment is premised on assumptions made by Australian State Government has reviewed the Singapore Government’s Smart Nation Plan and has decided to implement their own Smart State Plan. This will initially consist of a network of smart sensors and cameras at traffic lights, bus stops, ru
ish bins, etc. in their CBD to monitor citizen’s behaviour and address street crime. All of the work would be based on smart city plan developed by Singapore and Hongkong government. Making smart city would require internet connectivity that would make people use internet services to play games and streaming online videos, surfing social media sites. Work culture also gets affected by this type of unethical behaviour of internet users. Along with that how safety and security of connections are important in smart cities have been studied in this assignment.

Q1. Discussing personal and ethical implications for privacy for the proposed Government’s Smart Sensor Network:
a) The types or categories of people affected by this proposal
U
anization all over the world requires the government to adapt technologies that fulfil the modern requirements of development. According to Lau (2015), this is why u
an settlements throughout the globe such as Hong Kong are being transformed to smart cities. This has varying effects on different people and communities within the cities. As opined by Adibi (2015), there are several advantages in favour of the common people within a smart city while also benefiting the governmental bodies. The following is how different types of people are affected by smart city technologies:
· Underprivileged citizens: The underprivileged will be the most adversely affected group by smart city tech. According to Marthews & Tucker (2017), homeless individuals will be under more security and their lifestyle can be easily monitored through sensors. The poorer sections of society can also face trouble to cope up with the expenses of living in such expensive environments as it is inevitable that living in smart cities will be an expensive ordeal.
· Immigrants: Immigrants in smart cities will be benefited the same as normal citizens of the country. Their actions in public spaces can be monitored by the immigration authorities in case of legal issues.
· Middle Class citizens: This section of the society will be ensured safety in their neighbourhoods, in case they live in one with active crime rate.
· Students: Students are most likely to be affected in terms of their public behaviour.
· Upper Class citizens: Advantages in favour of the upper class will be high. They will gain a sense of security within their homes against the idea of theft, vandalism or life threats.
· Criminal groups: Criminal groups can be easily tracked with smart sensors installed in bus stops, trash cans etc. According to Westerman et al. (2017). Even small illegal actions by individuals can be traced. This ensures security throughout the city.
) Behavioural changes in common people using their mobile devices in the CBD,
General mobile device usage in CBDs is quite widespread, as they are required to ca
y out day-to-day work. As mentioned by Penney (2016), smart sensors provide assurance of safe space and security within CBDs; public surveillance in this context is valuable. However some changes in the behaviour of common people using their mobile devices can be observed like reduction in jaywalking, public photography and videographer and use of mobile phones on roads.
c) Changes in individual behaviours such as choice of activities, changes in time schedules, etc.
The active use of smart sensors within CBDs will cause varying changes in individual behaviour within all sections of the community. Australia houses one of the safest environments in the world but still has a number of reports against public demeanour and assault.
· Drugs and Alcohol consumption: Public abuse of illegal drugs will steadily start to decrease. Students and other easily influenced groups will be more reluctant in consuming alcohol in public.
· Public Display of Affection: Citizens will have a sense of constant surveillance and monitoring within smart sensor cities. According to Zuboff (2015), non-platonic couples or groups will feel invaded or exploited in showing public display of affection.
· Assault: One of the best advantages of smart sensors would be the security of women, children and other groups from sexual and other physical assault. Since traffic lights, street poles etc will have sensors it will be easy to track criminals. This also assures security against abductions and kidnappings.
· Purchase of illegal products: Purchase of drugs, hallucinogens etc will become limited. Moreover, smart sensors will aid in the tracking of drug smugglers and dealers via the system.
· Alertness: Overall, the public will become more alert in their actions; citizens will be considerate about littering and polluting areas.
· Vandalism and Theft: Vandalism would be minimized with the aid of smart sensors. Destruction or alteration of public and private property will become limited to places out of reach of the sensors.
Q2. Discussing personal and ethical implications for privacy for proposed Government’s Smart Wi-Fi Network:
a) Types or categories of people affected.
Smart Wi-Fi Network spread throughout cities and other areas can have adverse effects. As per statista.com (2018), it is projected that over 84.3% of the Australian population will be using smart phones by 2019.
Figure 1: Share of mobile phone users that use a smart phone in Australia (2014 - 2019)
(Source: statista.com, 2018)
These are a few examples how different categories of people may be affected by Government Wi-Fi network:
· Students: Students will be highly benefited from a government...
