Supporting the UK’s national surveillance strategy – White Paper
Challenges and opportunities for effective and proportionate surveillance
Public space surveillance is never far from the top of the public agenda and has become part of everyday life. Making sure we have an effective and proportionate national surveillance strategy is an ongoing challenge. A balance must be struck to keep our country safe while implementing a level of surveillance that respects our rights to privacy.
Vision: an integrated surveillance platform
There is an almost boundless wealth of structured and unstructured surveillance data in multiple formats, collected and stored by different organisations using different systems, methods and standards. To maximise this data’s value to safeguard the UK, all existing surveillance capabilities could be brought together through one integrated platform. The principles of proportionality and transparency must be central to any such system, though, and individual privacy must remain paramount. This whitepaper explores the benefits of taking a joined-up approach to surveillance and how digital technology could support this aim.
Following an innovation event – “Supporting the UK’s Surveillance Strategy” – held in April 2017 at Atos’ Business Technology and Innovation Centre, we have created this thought leadership whitepaper to share the ideas discussed on the day by a number of public sector organisations.
