To meet this demand for equal access, Villes Internet also suggests financial access to individual or shared equipment creating a tax credit calculated based on social and disability inclusion criteria and installing public access computers in municipalities or dedicated locations. Finally, still in this concern for equality, the digital elect call “the state of digital mediation structures” guaranteeing multi-year funding for digital advisers France Services (CNFS) (our September 28, 2022 article), developing “a national referral system for the training of intermediaries or even building “bridges between all digital players in a territory”.

To do this, it would be necessaryThe training of elected officials in the obligations of local authorities”, “conducting territorial diagnoses to support strategies on sustainable data” and “establishing tools for monitoring and evaluating digital strategies”, lists the Internet Cities motion also suggest. show the example ofresponsible energy and digital consumption in relations with citizens using the collected data as tools to help save energy (transportation, lighting, heating, etc.). It is also proposed that generalize the circular economy sector IN encouraging the rebuilding of computers in particular.
Finally, in relation to the fourth and last axis, “How to prevent digital risks in the long term?”, the motion advocates a control of data processing and storage, guaranteeing “data protection with strict criteria in public contracts”, “outlawing new legal obligations imposed without data protection tools”, developing “awareness tools for agents who have to face exponential dematerialization ”, without forgetting, of course, to “provide communities with financial means to face the risk of cyber attacks”. Elected digital officials conclude that it is necessary “create a plan for crisis management and business continuity”, multiplying cyber attack simulation exercises.
