Prevention – Getting smarter, faster and more precise. Preparing policing strategies, approach and tactics for managing urban centers and global cities of the future

Digital technologies today can speed up the reaction time of police all over the world. To keep cities safe, law enforcement must be armed with the right technology as well as the processes, behaviour and culture to solve – or even prevent – the toughest crimes at faster rates.

How do local authorities, law enforcement and fellow stakeholders make use of big data and Internet of Things (IoT) to detect and prepare for threats? Can artificial intelligence technologies such as robotics play a key role in extracting knowledge and intelligence from big data, and improve situational awareness?

The evolution in policing capabilities in these areas will develop more accurate analysis, smarter use of police resources, and faster coordination for better crisis management and prevention. Collaborative approaches are also required to have a collective impact.

Day 1

Shedding light on the “Dark side”– Cyberspace 4.0 and the future of policing Managing cyber threats to society from the “hidden” Internet

The Darknet or Deep Web is a part of the Internet where individuals can interact anonymously online. The internet and the Darknet have enabled an unprecedented globalization of both physical and virtual crime.

Darknet marketplaces are increasingly used to procure drugs, weapons and counterfeit money, benefiting the perpetrators of terrorism, illicit markets, organized crime and a myriad of other transnational crimes.

What is the impact of the underground economy online? What capabilities should be built to understand and solve crimes that exploit social fault lines? What are the underlying social and technological causes of cybercrime that law enforcement needs to understand, to mitigate its effect effectively? How do criminals exploit the Darknet to enhance their criminality, recruit and spread their ideology? What risks and opportunities lie in emerging technology in Cyberspace 4.0?

Day 2

Identity management and detection in a borderless world. Law enforcement, migration and border management in an age of globalization 

Globalization has increased the speed, volume and diversity of people and goods crossing our borders. While technology advancements have enabled immigration and law enforcement agencies to cope with such an increasingly challenging operating environment, they have also made it easier for criminals seeking to circumvent law enforcements efforts to detect people, vehicles/ships and devices, through use of false physical and electronic identities, counterfeit travel documents and more.

The abundance of personal data placed online and the use of automated systems to process data online, has made identity theft increasingly common and easy.

How can technologies such as biometrics better manage identities in a borderless and cyber-enabled world? How can we create solutions to help law enforcement in the identification, verification and validation of individual’s identity? A coordinated approach is also necessary to improve border security.
