Risk analysis for criminal context in information sharing policies.

Uthmani, Omair; Buchanan, William J; Lawson, Alistair


Omair Uthmani


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).
