The advances of smart city infrastructure spark an increasing interest in digital twins for cities using the plethora of new sensors that will be deployed across the city to monitor the urban environment. In normal operation, the digital twin provides an overview of the current state of the city. During disaster scenarios, the digital twin of the city will be able to provide the emergency services with an overview of the situation, increasing their effectiveness and supporting them in planning their course of action. This calls for a discussion about the data protection laws as well as data protection by design approaches and secure processing techniques in accordance with current European law. Our paper will discuss the related data protection laws and describe the technical overview of a system with both, permanent stationary sensors and mobile on-demand agents.
