2.2 Episecc project Overview

  1. 1. Establish Pan-European Information Space to Enhance seCurity of Citizens Funded from the European Community’s Seventh Framework Programme FP7/SEC 2013.5.1-1 under the grant agreement no. 607078 “EPISECC”. Project Overview EPISECC in a Nutshell Marie Christine BONNAMOUR PSCE
  2. 2. Basics FP7 SEC 2013.5.1-1: Analysis and identification of security systems and data set used by first responders and police authorities – Capability Project 21.09.2016 2 Organisation Name Short Country AIT Austrian Institute of Technology GmbH AIT AT Airbus Finland (former Cassidian Finland OY) CasFI FI Airbus France (former Cassidian SAS) CSD FR Sveuciliste u Splitu (University of Split) UNIST HR Public Safety Communication Europe Forum AISBL PSCE BE HITEC Luxembourg S.A.

  3. 3. Challenges • Interoperability, interconnectivity as well intercommunication of systems are predominant challenges in European crisis and disaster management • 34% of all requests of stakeholders on Improvement of disaster management are related to improved interoperability (followed by resources and technical solutions, 15% each) • Apart from language barriers, lack of common taxonomies and standardized Network Enabled Communication are hampering European interoperability 21.09.2016 3
  4. 4. Motivation • Key requirements for services in crisis situations • First 72 hours after a catastrophe are crucial 21.09.2016 4 I. Efficient communication II. access to critical information III. interconnectedness of stakeholders However, services are often compromised and need to be re-established. Need to provide communication tools and information collection within this period
  5. 5. The EU Projects • 4 projects were granted for this call and will all end mid-2017:  EPISECC (Establish Pan-European Information Space to Enhance seCurity of Citizens)  REDIRNET (Emergency Responder Data Interoperability Network)  SECINCORE (Secure Dynamic Cloud for Information, Communication and Resource Interoperability)  SECTOR (Secure European Common Information Space for the Interoperability of First Responders and Police Authorities) • EPISECC approach: A CIS with focus on information exchange at tactical/strategic levels in response to critical events 21.09.2016 5
  6. 6. COMMON ACTIONS- Task Forces • Ethical, Legal and Social Issues (ELSI): Open collaboration platform on ELSI guidelines, Workshop on ELSI in networked, collaborative public protection and disaster relief (17.5.16, Brussels), White Paper on IT in risk governance to be published in fall 2016 • Standardisation: CEN Workshop on terminologies in crisis and disaster management in preparation • Taxonomy: Alignment of basic sources applied, harmonization of tools and taxonomies, complementary ontology implementation • Dissemination: Interaction in (social) media, joint representation 21.09.2016 6

  8. 8. Objectives 1. Develop a pan-European inventory of past critical events/disasters and their consequences focusing on the performance of processes, data exchange and organisational boundaries 2. Develop a concept of a common information space including appropriate semantic definitions by taxonomies and/or ontologies. 3. Analysing existing interoperability concepts and derive concept of a common information space 4. Validation of the architecture and suggestion of novel Emergency and Crisis Management Models 21.09.2016 8

  10. 10. Areas of the Inventory 21.09.2016 10 Crisis Management (emergency management, recovery management, strategies, etc.) Disaster Types & Context Data (threats, dangers, scale, duration, affected people, etc.) Critical Infrastructures (energy, information and communication, mobility and logistics, etc.) Science (social science, engineering, natural science, etc.) Icons made by Freepik from is licensed by CC BY 3.0
  11. 11. Questionnaire – Interface to Stakeholders 11 • Information on interviewed Organization • Focus on specific event (Disaster) including used processes, measures, standards, data resources, tools, cooperation with other organizations and interoperability 21.09.2016
  12. 12. Summary of Outcome from Inventory • More than 50 interviews were performed interviewing mainly governmental organizations • Interoperability was in most cases at least acceptable according to a indicator developed on purpose • Regarding use of common standards and tools the degree of harmonization seems to be low in Europe • The majority of disasters analyzed were natural, hydrological disasters • About 180 requirements dedicated to improve management of disasters were expressed, the majority of them are related to interoperability • Information obtained so far is used to improve the development of a common information space and gives in addition insight in European crisis and disaster management - we continue to look for additional areas of application of the EPISECC inventory 21.09.2016 12
