If we consider ICTs as powerful means to implement SDGs we must include and adequately take into account ICTs applied to safety and security in a broad sense, they are relevant part of SDGs as outlined many times both within the UNGA Overall WSIS Review and the UNDP 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development SDGs. A number of SDGs are tightly connected or rely on safety and security: SDG 2, SDG3, SDG6, SGD6, SDG7, SDG8, SDG9, SDG11, SDG16, SDG17. Some of the specific fields are: food & water security, human security, safety, critical infrastructure resilience, drugs security and more. Safety and security are integral part of human rights as well; we must provide all the efforts in order to guarantee such rights (as stated in art 3, 22, 25 - The Universal Declaration of Human Rights). Nowadays the demand for "safety & security" in all its forms has increased, especially quantitatively and qualitatively, making clear the need for new approaches to enable the entire sector to ensure better results. Looking from a different perspective: we outline the role of ICTs in risks assessment and management. They are playing key roles in a number of “risky” scenarios from health and children abuse to homeland security and law enforcement, crimes, trafficking (humans, drugs, weapons, artefacts, etc.) and even safety on working places and mobility. Internet of things, machine learning, grids, network of sensors, remote sensing as well as near field communication and, why not, unmanned vehicles glued by networking are some of the building blocks of safety and security in different fields. Of course technology it is not enough to solve problems, it is well known and demonstrated that a holistic, interdisciplinary approach and a culture of "safety & security" are the basis in order to obtain good results in this area.
