At many levels, the role of technology and security has diversified over time. Technology whilst facilitating the path to ascertain levels of safety and security has been met with resonating challenges. These challenges stem from the inability to access available technology due to cost incurred as seen in the lack of access to technology such as solar panels for renewable resources despite the benefits that can be reaped over time. Conversely, technology has reduced the cost of the exchange of ideas and skillsets. This exchange of ideas can be witnessed through a multiplicity of platforms. This reduction in cost and increased accessibility has resulted in the exchange of ideas at an unprecedented pace. Technology, crime and terrorism continue to intersect and impact each other not only in the manner through which terrorists and criminals attempt to evade enforcement agencies, but additionally the manner through which enforcement agencies are forced to ensure that old world law enforcement strategies and policies do not chase new world crime.
