RISEPTIS Report published
 

The RISEPTIS Report was finalised and adopted by Board Members at a meeting in Brussels on October 6th. The Report has now gone to print and will be distributed extensively across the EU. It is also available here.

The RISEPTIS Advisory Board was established in April 2008. Its objective was to provide visionary guidance on policy and research challenges in the field of security and trust in the Information Society. Now, after much discussion and a number of plenary meetings between the Board Chairman, Members, Observers and support personnel from the Think-Trust project, a 40+ page Report has been delivered. Entitled ‘Trust in the Information Society', the Report contains recommendations that encompass a number of areas to be addressed as we move forward into the Digital Age. These include:

  • * Interdisciplinary research, technology development and deployment
  •  
  • * Initiatives to bring together technology, policy, legal and socio-economic actors to work towards a trustworthy Information Society
  •  
  • * A common EU framework for identity and authentication management 
  •    
  • * Further development of the EU data protection and privacy legal framework
  •  
  • * Large-scale actions involving industrial and public actors, which take advantage of Europe's strengths in communication, research, legal studies and societal values
  •  
  • * Cooperation on a global scale to promote open standards and federated frameworks
