Using ICT in the creation of digital infrastructure, technological and human are competent enough to enable dynamic and reactant decision-making and service delivery with seamless back-end process, along with creating the databases and its integration at differential levels catering to the requirements.

The concept of smart cities is something that has come to be known in the last two years, though it has been here for a while. Chandigarh is one example and Gurgaon too followed the suite. In my smart cities research, I was forced to presume that it is primarily digital in nature. A major concern in smart cities is its safety and security. The 9/11 attack exposed the world to change and consolidation of activities, nature of organisations and greater usage of technology took place. After the recent Paris attacks, encrypted communication has come to the forefront. It is not difficult to decode. A state which doesn’t have the capability to encrypt the communication in case of threat to national sovereignty and territorial integrity will not be able to deliver its prime duty of sovereignty, territorial integrity and liberty. These kind of breaches and attacks are created to generate fear in the minds of the people that everything is porous, hack-able and breach-able. As Steve Job’s said, “We are at the crossroads of technology and humanity.” Technology is racing to become the mankind’s DNA.
