What does a better world denote? A World with no threats, a world with unity, a world with no terrorism. But plaintively, we don’t live in such a beautiful world. The recent terrorist attack in Syria,home break-ins, cyber attacks are the number of problems that the world face today.  On the other hand, technologies have made our life easier, simple and it has provided us the tools to overcome dangers. Technology has both merits and demerits. If we ignore the negative slice, we can look forward towards our safety.

Astrong technological infrastructure should be built in government agencies that should response to public emergencies immediately, soas to ensure public safety. There are more technologies which are trying to ensure our safety by adding more innovation to it, like Facebook is trying to improve more safety in its features to ensure safety of individual privacy.

Technology may not be able to solve all of our safety concerns, but it certainly making a difference. All we can do is give that technology a chance and keep following the advice “BE CAREFUL OUT THERE”.
