The PRISMS project analysed the traditional trade-off model between privacy and security and devised a more evidence-based perspective for reconciling privacy and security, trust and concern. It examined how technologies aimed at enhancing security are subjecting citizens to an increasing amount of surveillance and, in many cases, causing infringements of privacy and fundamental rights.
The aim of PRISM CODE project was to design some of the fundamental tools for privacy and security of the upcoming distributed services, which are built upon the cooperation of mobile personal devices like smartphones, PDAs, or tablets.
The goal of PRECIOSA was to demonstrate that co-operative systems can comply with future privacy regulations by demonstrating that an example application can be endowed with technologies for suitable privacy protection of location related data.
PRACTIS's mission was to increase readiness and awareness to the impact of emerging technologies on privacy issues among citizens, policy makers and stakeholders. The main goals were to identify and assess evolving impacts on privacy that might result from various emerging technologies and new scientific knowledge and to propose means to cope with potential future risks to privacy in both the legal and social spheres, while maximising the benefits of these new technologies.
The objective of the project is to advance the state of the art in technologies that provide privacy-enhanced identity and trust management features within complex community-supporting services that are built on Next Generation Networks and delivered by multiple communication service providers. The approach taken by the project is to research, develop, build trial and evaluate an open, privacy-respecting, trust-enabling identity management platform that supports the provision of community services by mobile communication service providers.
The aim of PATS is to increase privacy awareness across various sectors, from firms to government agencies focussing especially on the development and use of Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) and biometrics. On the basis of a socio-technical mapping the idea is to create security brand indicators that refer to the value of privacy. It is well known that neither laws nor other organizational practices can exclusively provide a reasonable level of protection for privacy today.
The main initiative towards the development of a Space Surveillance and Tracking (SST) capability at European level is represented by the SST Support Framework decision adopted by the Council and the European Parliament on the 16 of April 2014.
The project Public Perception of Security and Privacy: Assessing Knowledge, Collecting Evidence, Translating Research into Action (PACT) is a three year collaborative project under the EU 7th Framework research programme led by CSSC - Centre for Science, Society and Citizenship in Rome. PACT seeks to develop and validate an evidence-based Privacy Reference Framework for a Security Decision Support System that may assist end-users and policy makers to consider human rights, privacy and fundamental rights when they evaluate pros and cons of specific security investments and measures.
There are a few EU publications on cyber security/cyber crime and the gambling sector. This proposal is novel in that it focused on the threat to the integrity of online gambling sites from organised criminal elements in the EU (most research on this subject is done in the USA), and their ability to withstand threats, intimidation and extortion and responses to these threats.
MAS2TERING was a three-year technology-driven and business-focused project (2014-2017), aimed at developing an innovative information and communication technology (ICT) platform for the monitoring and optimal management of local communities of prosumers. MAS2TERING combined an original business vision, with goals towards the enablement of local energy aggregation markets, utilizing a set of enabling technologies from the artificial intelligence, communications, and security domains.
