This calls for equipment such as CCTVs and Biometrics hardware and software to collect the essentials in its raw, unprocessed form.

Analysing Data collected

Indian government’s renewed focus on digital initiatives and cybersercurity, will create huge opportunities for cybersecurity solution providers.


Integrated effort between Government, Businesses and the Community

India’s Ministry of Home Affairs is assisting state government to modernised its state police forces. Assistance is provided in procurement of state-of-the-art CCTV surveillance cameras, radio tetra sets, forensic labs, vehicles, computerised systems and training.


However, safe Cities is not the sole responsibility of the Police Forces and the homeland security team. Businesses dealing in critical infrastructure such as airports, transportation, telecommunications, finance, building management, emergency services and even water and electricity must stay vigilant.


The emergence of Smart Technology from many devices, buildings, and critical infrastructure means that more information is widely available to gather and interpret. This analysis provides intelligence on how to act/react to critical situations. This is critical in making a city safe.
