ILEAnet Public Workshop #4 on “Standardisation in Security Research”

This event will look into the benefits of standardisation in security research and reflecting on ways to facilitate the involvement of law enforcement practitioners in standardisation activities and in Research & Innovation.

Security
9 June 2021 - 11 June 2021
Paris, France

Scope

Building on some of the work conducted by the ILEAnet, concerned with defining the security-related areas of most common interest for future standardisation and elaborating recommendations for the uptake of solutions by law enforcement practitioners, the fourth ILEAnet Public Workshop will focus on:

- standardisation needs in four priority areas identified by ILEAnet (i.e. cybercrime, organised crime, irregular migration and terrorism)
- ways to engage law enforcement practitioners in standardisation activities and in R&I

Approach

In line with the ILEAnet approach as evidenced in previous events, the fourth ILEAnet Public Workshop aims to convene an expert audience, prompt their thinking and promote ways to support the uptake of research outputs by police forces. Experts from DG HOME, CEN/CENELEC Technical Committees and the CEN/CENELEC Security Sector Forum will help set the scene for standardisation in security and EU research projects with a standardisation component will share their experience.

The event will encompass:

- An introductory session explaining standards to law enforcement practitioners and providing an overview of the standardisation landscape in security
- Presentations from a number of targeted research projects whose experience in standardisation can be a good source of learning for law enforcement practitioners
- A collaborative session on recommendations for standardisation in domains identified in the ILEAnet project
- A collaborative session on recommendations for “soft standards” to facilitate the involvement of practitioners in standardisation

Expectations:

At the end of this three-day event, participants are expected to have:

• Furthered their understanding of the benefits of standardisation in security and why standardisation activities should be seen as an investment for law enforcement practitioners
• Gained an informed overview of the standardisation landscape in security, including examples of standards needed in cybercrime, organised crime, irregular migration and terrorism, and helped prioritise standardisation domains
• Learned in a practical way about European research projects which have successfully conducted standardisation activities
• Reflected on best practices to facilitate the involvement of law enforcement practitioners in standardisation activities
• Contributed to the general thinking on ways to encourage the involvement of law enforcement practitioners in security research, innovation and development and potentially initiate some "soft standards" to facilitate this involvement
