Big cities are now hothouses for economic growth, innovation, urban and development. This success also attracts petty crimes, hackers’ attacks or terrorist attacks. However, against those wrongdoers, new technology is starting to become available in order to help the society, increase the safety and security of the dwellers and raise their quality of life. The paper is based on comparative indexes about the safest cities of the world, as a result from two reports given by the research and analysis division of The Economist Group, The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU). These reports were made in 2015 and 2017 and rank 60 cities from all over the world, across 49 indicators, covering digital security, health security, infrastructure security and personal security. My article focuses on urban developing, digital security, personal security like terrorist attacks, criminality, the best place to live, the biggest cities of the world, comparisons between 2015 and 2017, in order to understand how the world is changing and how that creates opportunities to be seized and risks to be managed.
