Risk Analysis for Criminal Context in Information Sharing Policies

Uthmani, O., Buchanan, W., Lawson, A. (2011, August). Risk Analysis for Criminal Context in Information Sharing Policies. Paper presented at SCONE, Glasgow.



This presentation outlines of a novel system which maps the information sharing between two domains. It involves the definition of a formalized information sharing policy, which maps the organisation infrastructure which is exposed for the sharing between the domains. A unique element is the additional of a risk context, which is used to define the level of criminal risk involved in the sharing of information. The work shows the results of a survey done within the Scottish Police on the attitudes to criminal risks, and presents a novel system for defining criminal risk which can then be used within the information sharing policy. The work is currently funded by the Scottish Institute for Policing Research (SIPR).
