Mapping: PATS - Privacy Awareness through Security Organsiation Branding

Modern security technologies such as CCTV and biometry are increasingly used in complex systems and private and private-public settings such as companies or railway stations, airports and shopping malls respectively. In such a situation it may not be sufficient to rely exclusively on legislation to protect the privacy of the citizen. Given that security companies have an acute interest to be trusted by citizens, they might want to embrace an approach of self-regulation strengthening data privacy protection. The PATS project aims to increase the sensibilities of security companies and to promote what is called ‘organisational self-awareness’ through branding. Using reflexive measures such as open expert interviews, dialogue workshops, expert evaluations/focus groups and two major conferences PATS seeks to initiate not only an informed and constructive debate between stakeholders in order to enable rather proactive than reactive for future policies and strategies. In particular the project attempts to broaden the design process of new technologies through dialogue between innovators and the public so that research and development activities can meet social needs and reduce mistaken investment decision and potential social conflicts.
