MEDI@4SEC is organising a workshop on Innovative Market Solutions on September 26th in Brussels.

What is MEDI@4SEC?

Does the Internet create more opportunities for criminal than for law enforcement? Can social media platforms help law enforcement keep up? To what extend is privacy intruded upon, limited, infriged or violated?

The aim of MEDI@4SEC, a european project funded under H2020, is to address these kind of concerns. The project focuses upon enhancing the understanding of the opportunities, challenges and ethical consideration of social media use for public security. The objective is to build a community of stakeholders engaged in using social media for public security for them to exchange experience, information and ideas to enhance the use of this tool in a very dynamic environment.

What the workshop will be about?

The aim of this workshop is to create a common vision and agenda for the technological future of policing through the usage of innovation in social media. The following questions will be discussed:

  • How will cutting edge technology like virtual and augmented reality will integrate in security?
  • What are the challenges and opportunities of such technology?
  • Do we need more training and education towards authorities for faster adaptation to new technologies and the legal and ethical issues raising with the advanced usage of social media?

This workshop is an opportunity for law enforcement agencies and other public security providers to engage and share views with solutions providers, social network representatives, end-users and entrepreneurs.
