As megacities emerge in splendor, so also do threats to security and sustainability of these cities. Earlier research found out that the leading threat amongst several security and safety threats in megacities are organized crimes. Since technology is involved in all facets of megacities, including the threats therein, this paper seeks to stimulate scientific curiosity in finding out effective and sustainable ways of harnessing technology in readiness, to protect these cities from threats rather than reactively responding to them. Using Lagos State, an emerging mega city as a case study, we seek how to systematically execute this concern which should be built from the scratch into megacities systems.A Megacity Digital Forensic Readiness Model (MEDFORM) is proposed in this paper.
