New threats: new solutions / New societal and legal issues

28 April - 11:30 - 12:30

European research centers have agreed to share their thoughts on Security and Technology : What are the evolving threats in their country ?
What are the new technologies fostering these threats and which technologies bring solutions up ?
How do authorities react and what are the coming public debates to expect ?
The synthesis proposed by the IRIS research center will focus on the governments' expectations towards new technologies and on the necessary standardization of equipment and process.
Discussions will focus on the necessary balance between public freedoms, defense of privacy and security based on an overview of worldwide approaches.

Track n°1: How to protect a connected world?

28 April - 13:30 - 14:30

As we increasingly engage with digitally based technologies, so the opportunities for Criminality using those technologies has exponentially increased. The scale of digitally based communication and commerce is enormous and accelerating: there are probably over 1.75 billion smartphone users in the world with mobile phone services available to 90% of the global population, in excess of 3 billion people access and use the Internet, and somewhere in the region of 2.13 billion people use social networking. The financial context to this is equally enormous; for example, the revenues of commercial banking in the US in 2016 are projected to reach 339.4 billion US$, with much of that value dependent on or using digitally based technologies. Such distributed capacity offers enormous criminal opportunities, and presents great challenges to individual and commercial users and those responsible for protection and safety in the online world. The nature of criminality we face, however, is not just in terms of financial crime; substantive criminal conspiracies not financially based, such as those related to child protection or terrorism, represent as much of a challenge to social functioning as do financial theft or fraud. In this Track we will explore these issues; we will focus specifically on the role of Biometrics and Forensics in protecting against criminality, explore specific issues related to transportation systems, and consider the role of law enforcement in protecting against misuse of social media.

Speakers

  • Prof. Ben Israel - Israel Space Agency / Israel National Council for R&D
  • Franck Pavero - Conseiller de Défense et de Sécurité pour la lutte contre la Cybercriminalité et le Cyberterrorisme, France

Track n°2: New trends in transnational crime

28 April - 16:00 - 17:00

Emerging themes in transnational crime.
Specifically, the session will look at transnational gangs and mafias, illicit flows, convergence with other threats, and their influence on governance. Four specific areas to be covered including:

- Transnational Drug Cartels and Gangs
- Human Trafficking
- Convergence (between global crime and terrorism)
- Corruption and illicit flows

Cumulatively this would address strategic threat potentials.

Track n°3: Public/ Private Partnership issues

29 April - 10:30 - 11:30

Illicit trade is a multi-billion dollar illegal activity that has become a concern for both government and business. Despite significant efforts to date, illegal trade in tobacco products remains one of the most profitable and least risky forms of illicit trade. Approximately 600 billion illicit cigarettes are consumed annually. The harms caused by this illicit trade can be substantial, and the illicit actors vary from small-scale smugglers to large-scale criminal operations funding serious organized crime and terrorism. Eradicating the illegal trade is a goal too challenging for any one group, government, or company to solve alone. Governments, the private sector and civil society need to acknowledge their common interests in this endeavor and further join their efforts. Utilizing the unique opportunities associated with public private partnerships (PPP) to share information and collaborate on strategies to counter the illicit trade may be of value to governments and law enforcement agencies . Effective government policy and enforcement, the private sector's resources and expertise, civil society initiatives – every element is vital to achieve concrete and long-term results.
